Low-Resolution Infrared (LRIR) Data

NSSDCA ID: ESRB-00063

Availability: Data Accessible Elsewhere

Time span: 1967-05-09 to 1967-09-22

Description

Low-Resolution Infrared (LRIR) data from the ESSA 5 flat plate radiometer experiment are available on magnetic tape through the National Environmental Satellite Service (NESS), Suitland, MD. These binary tapes were prepared on a CDC 6600 computer using as input the digitized radiation measurements from the 4 sensing elements, orbital data, and spacecraft attitude parameters. Additional data on the LRIR tapes consist of instrument housing temperatures and diagnostic and solar ephemeris information. The exact format of the LRIR tapes and a complete descrption of the processing procedures can be found in ESSA Technical Report No. 42, "Operational Processing of Low Resolution Infrared (LRIR) Data from ESSA Satellite," February 1968.
