Summary
Abstract: The Limb Infrared Monitor of the Stratosphere (LIMS) version 6 retrieved
profile data set consist of daily, geolocated, vertical profiles of
temperature, geopotential height, and mixing ratios of ozone (O3), nitrogen
dioxide (NO2), water vapor (H2O), and nitric acid (HNO3). The LIMS instrument was launched on the Nimbus-7 satellite and was operational from 25 October 1978 until May 28, 1979.
