Summary
Abstract: Shuttle Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet (SSBUV) Level-2 Ozone data are available for the first four of the eight space shuttle missions flown between 1989 and 1991. SSBUV, a successor to the SBUV flown on the Nimbus-7 satellite, is nearly identical to the SBUV/2 instruments flying on the NOAA satellites. Data are available in an ASCII AMES text format. Ozone profiles of the upper atmosphere and ... View entire text

Quality Ozone along orbital track in the nadir and daytime only. Ozone values listed in the AMES ASCII format have been screened to include only those scans that pass quality code standards (as specified in the file header). Portions of mission are dedicated to SSBUV solar view; thus there is incomplete spatial coverage within the stated latitude bounds.
