Short Name:

First ISCCP Regional Experiment (FIRE) Cirrus 1 TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS) Data

Temperature soundings from the TOVS sensor on NOAA-9 and -10 satellites. Soundings were made for each pixel over the cirrus IFO network. Sounding information contains both standard levels and layer means. Cloud top heights and cloud amount/emmissivity also are included. Temperature soundings were made at the overpass times of the NOAA-9 and NOAA-10 satellites when the FIRE network (Wisconsin) was in view of the satellite. There is a maximum of 4 observationtimes per day.
