Abstract: The project MUSICA (MUlti-platform remote Sensing of Isotopologues for investigating the Cycle of Atmospheric water) integrates tropospheric water vapour isotopologue remote sensing and in situ observations. This paper presents a first empirical validation of MUSICA's H2O and δD remote sensing products, generated from ground-based FTIR (Fourier transform infrared), spectrometer and space-based IASI (infrared atmospheric sounding interferometer) observation. The study is made in the area of the Canary Islands in the subtropical northern Atlantic. As reference we use well calibrated in situ measurements made aboard an aircraft (between 200 and 6800 m a.s.l.) by the dedicated ISOWAT instrument and on the island of Tenerife at two different altitudes (at Izaña, 2370 m a.s.l., and at Teide, 3550 m a.s.l.) by two commercial Picarro L2120-i water isotopologue analysers.
Sponsorship : This study has been conducted in the framework of the project MUSICA which is funded by the European Research Council under the European Community’s Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013)/ERC Grant agreement number 256961. E. Sepúlveda is supported by the Ministerio de Economía and Competitividad of Spain for the project NOVIA (CGL2012-37505). The aircraft campaign has been co-funded by the project MUSICA and the Spanish national project AMISOC (CGL2011- 24891). The Izaña aerosol in situ measurements are part of the project POLLINDUST (CGL2011-26259) funded by the Minister of Economy and Competitiveness of Spain. The AERONET sun photometer at Izaña (PI: Emilio Cuevas) has been calibrated within AERONET EUROPE TNA supported by the European Community Research Infrastructure Action under the FP7 Capacities program for Integrating Activities, ACTRIS grant agreement number 262254.
