Ozone Profiles


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

Time span: 1967-08-30 to 1968-02-29


This data set was provided by the principal investigator and it contains calculated ozone profiles. The data are on a BCD magnetic tape written on an IBM 7094 computer. Specifically, there are 995 profiles for September 1967, 1508 profiles for October 1967, 647 profiles for November 1967, 514 profiles for December 1967, and 381 profiles for January 1968. Every profile consists of values at 16 different pressure levels, and requires 5 records or card images. The first record in each set gives the tape and record number, the date and time of the measurement (Greenwich and local mean times), the location of the satellite, and the sun's azimuth and zenith angles. The remaining four records each contain four pairs of values. Each pair consists of the pressure (millibars) and the corresponding mixing ratio (gram per gram).
