Summary
Abstract: The High Resolution Dynamics Limb Sounder (HIRDLS) aboard the EOS Aura spacecraft was launched July 15, 2004. The instrument is designed to scan the Earth limb at multiple azimuth angles, measuring infrared emissions in 21 channels ranging from 6.12 to 17.76 microns in the upper troposphere, stratosphere and mesosphere. These measurements are used to determine the concentrations of O3, H2O, CH4, ... View entire text
