Orbit Track and Monthly Averaged NO2 Volume Mixing Ratio Profiles from the Solar Mesosphere Explorer (SME) Visible Spectrometer
Entry ID: 81-100A-04BC

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The SME nitrogen dioxide data were derived from radiance measurements made by
the visible spectrometer in the spectral interval of 312 to 647 nm. Nitrogen
dioxide volume mixing ratios are given for 8 pressure levels spaced evenly
between 24 and 40 km. Horizontally the data cover from pole to pole at
increments of 5 degrees.

There are two data sets: the orbit track nitrogen dioxide data cover years
1982 through 1986 in two tapes, and the monthly averages cover the same time
period in one tape.
