Meteorological Data Catalog for The Applications Technology Satellites

NSSDCA ID: ESAD-00133

Availability: Data Accessible Elsewhere

Time span: 1967-11-05 to 1970-05-25

Description

This data set is contained in vol 2, 3, 4, and 5 of the five-volume publication "The ATS Meteorological Data Catalog," published by NASA/GSFC, that describes and indexes the data from the ATS 1 Spin Scan Cloud Camera (SSCC), the ATS 3 Multicolor Spin Scan Cloud Camera (MSSCC), and the ATS 3 Image Dissector Camera System (IDCS). The catalog also contains orbit information and usually one picture per day (normally full disk, taken near local noon) as acquired from the three experiments. The first two volumes of this set serve as a data user's guide for each of the three experiments. In addition to describing each experiment, they also contain explanations of the acquisition, categorization, cataloging, and data archiving processes. The five volumes cover the following time periods: January 1 to June 30, 1967 (vol 1--contains only ATS 1 data); July 1, 1967, to January 31, 1968 (vol 2); February 1 to December 31, 1968 (vol 3); January 1 to July 31, 1969 (vol 4); and August 1, 1969, to May 25, 1970 (vol 5--contains only ATS 3 data).
