Summary
Abstract: The Improved Stratospheric and Mesospheric Sounder (ISAMS) Level 3AT data product consists of daily, 65.536 second interval time-ordered vertical profiles of temperature and concentrations of O3, H2O, CH4, CO, N2O, N2O5, NO2, and aerosol absorption coefficients. The insrument measured infrared molecular emmissions in the spectral region from 4.6 to 16.6 microns. ISAMS was flown on NASA's Upper ... View entire text
