Microwave Spectrometer Output Files (NEMSOT)

NSSDCA ID: ESAD-00129

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1972-12-18 to 1973-10-31

Description

The Nimbus E Microwave Spectrometer (NEMS) data are available on magnetic tapes. Also referred to as NEMS Output Tapes (NEMSOT), the data were produced by the experimenter on an IBM 360/165 computer. They contain surface reflectivity, water vapor, liquid water, thickness, temperature at standard pressure levels, surface brightness temperature, and surface type information. Data are grouped into 16-s, earth-viewing frames. National Meteorological Center grid data, interpolated in time and space to the NEMS measurement point, are sometimes included. These data are also available on microfiche as data set 72-097A-03B.
