Summary
Abstract: The Halogen Occultation Experiment (HALOE) Level 2 data product consists of daily vertical profiles of temperature, aerosol extinciton and pressure, as well as concentrations of HCl, HF, CH4, NO by gas filter correlation radiometry and H2O, NO2, O3 and CO2 by broadband filter radiometry. The instrument measured atmospheric infrared absorption at wavelengths from 2.43 to 10.25 microns. HALOE was ... View entire text
