LIMS/Nimbus-7 Level 1 Radiance Data V001 (LIMSN7L1PROFILER) at GES DISC

Version 001 eng
  • Abstract
    LIMSN7L1PROFILER is the Nimbus-7 Limb Infrared Monitor of the Stratosphere (LIMS) Level-1 Profiles of Radiance Data product and contains selected daily vertical profiles across the earth’s atmospheric limb derived from the LIMS Level-1 Radiance Archival Tape (RAT) data product. Measurements are obtained, as a function of tangent height (or scan angle), once every 12 seconds in each of the six spectral bands (two 15-micrometer CO2 bands (narrow and wide), an 11.3-micrometer HNO3 band, a 9.6-micrometer O3 band, a 6.9-micrometer H2O band, and a 6.2-micrometer NO2 band) from the highest pressure level to the lowest in steps of 0.1 km Each file contains one days worth of data (~14 orbits per day). LIMS is a limb profiler and spatial coverage is near global between latitude -64 and +84 degrees. Vertical coverage is from about 10 to 50 km (O3 channel to 65 km), with vertical resolution of about 1.5 km. The data are available from 25 October 1978 through 30 May 1979. The principal investigators for the LIMS experiment were Dr. James M. Russell, III from NASA Langley and Dr. John Gille from NCAR. This product was previously available from the NASA National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC) under the name LIMS Radiance Archival Data with the identifier ESAC-00032 (old id 78-098A-01B).
