Summary
Abstract: The Shuttle Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet (SSBUV) instrument, a successor to the SBUV flown on the Nimbus-7 satellite, is nearly identical to the SBUV/2 instruments flying on the NOAA satellites. SSBUV was flown on the Space Shuttle eight times between 1989 and 1996. The primary purpose of SSBUV was to validate the SBUV/2 ozone data, using discrete measurements at 12 ultraviolet wavelengths ... View entire text

Quality Ozone along orbital track in the nadir and daytime only. Ozone values listed in the 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.
