Summary
Abstract: Nearly identical to the Nimbus-7 TOMS instrument, a second TOMS
instrument was launched on-board the Russian Meteor-3 (Meteor 3-5)
spacecraft in 1991. The Meteor-3/TOMS had been collecting concurrent
ozone data with the Nimbus-7 TOMS until the Nimbus-7 TOMS failed in
May 1993.

The METEOR-3 TOMS data consists of ozone data in Dobson Units and
refelectivity. METEOR-3 TOMS data is available from
http://ozoneaq.gsfc.nasa.gov/measurements.md

and consists of north pole, south pole, and daily global 3-map
composites as well as ASCII data.

Nimbus-7, EP-TOMS and ADEOS TOMS data are also available from:
