Summary
Abstract: This dataset contains the TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS)
level 3 geophysical parameters derived using the physical retrieval
method of Susskind et al. (1984) and processed by the Satellite Data
Utilization Office of the Goddard Laboratory for Atmospheres at
NASA/GSFC. This method, which is hydrodynamic model- and a priori
