The SCIAMACHY instrument on-board ENVISAT measures since 2002 trace gas constituents of the atmosphere in nadir, limb and occultation configuration. It is an imaging spectrometer with a spectral range from the UV/VIS to SWIR (212 nm – 2384nm). In this paper we describe shortly the current status of the operational processing chains from Level 0-1b and Level 1b-2 that deliver Earth radiances, solar irradiance, trace gas total columns and profiles as well as cloud characteristics on an orbital basis. An outlook for future operational products is also given.
