Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) Ozone and Reflectivity Data and Images from METEOR-3Entry ID: TOMS_METEOR3
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
The METEOR-3 TOMS data consists of ozone data in Dobson Units and
refelectivity. METEOR-3 TOMS data is available from
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:
