Infrared Interferometer Spectrometer (IR IS) Radiance Data

NSSDCA ID: ESAD-00022

Availability: Data Accessible Elsewhere

Time span: 1970-04-09 to 1971-01-30

Description

This set of calibrated radiance data originally consisted of 9-track, 1600-bpi magnetic tapes that were processed on an IBM 360 computer. These tapes were restored to 6250 bpi tapes in 1990. The tapes contain thermal emission of the earth-atmosphere system for wave numbers between 400 and 1600 cm**-1, with a nominal resolution of 2.8 cm**-1. The tapes also contain documentation information, reference calibration, average instrument temperatures, and a summary for each orbital pass. Additional description of the data can be found in section 4 of "The Nimbus IV User's Guide," TRF B06861.

This data set was transferred to the Goddard Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC).
