Summary
Abstract: The Nimbus-7 spacecraft was launched on October 24, 1978 with a TOMS Flight Model 1 and began the longest series of ozone measurements from space. The Nimbus-7 data consists of ozone data in Dobson Units, reflectivity, erythermal ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and aerosol index. Meteor-3, EP-TOMS, and ADEOS TOMS data are also available.
