Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains the TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS)
level 3 geophysical parameters derived using the classification method
of Chedin and Scott (1985) and processed by the Atmopheric Radiation
Analysis (ARA) group of the Laboratoire de Meteorologie Dynamique
(LMD) du CNRS (France). This method, which is a priori ... View entire text
