Atmospheric spectroscopy with emphasis on key role of H2O in the atmosphere is the main topic of the proposed project. In the focus of our planned aims will be the quality of observational techniques, and how to improve them. This will involve intercomparison exercises and laboratory studies for in-situ techniques, and validation of satellite measurements. We plan laboratory spectroscopic measurements, that are crucial for improving of in-situ data above all from satellite measurements.

key words: atmospheric spectroscopy, satellite measurements, atmospheric water vapour, line shapes, monitoring of atmospheric molecules, ODIN, MIPAS.
