Summary
Abstract: This data product contains TOMS/Meteor-3 Ground Station Overpass Data Version 8 in ASCII format. The overpass data files contain the data derived from the best-matched TOMS field-of-view (FOV) to a site for every day the TOMS instrument was operational.

Four TOMS instruments were successfully flown on the following satellites: Nimbus-7 (Nov. 1978 - May 1993), Meteor-3 (Aug. 1991 - Dec. 1994), ... View entire text

Purpose: This product can be used to compare TOMS with ground station data.

METEOR-3 Ancillary Description
Quality Since TOMS on Meteor-3 was launched in a 212 day precessing polar orbit, the local equator crossing changes with time. Consequently no data were retrieved when the instrument was viewing near the morning or evening terminator. The table below lists the periods when high quality data are available:
