This is one of the early spectra obtained with the HIFI instrument on Herschel. In this spectrum of Comet Garradd the strong water line is clearly evident. HIFI studies will compare the characteristics of water and volatile organic molecules released by different comets in the Solar System as they approach the Sun.
