The Japanese Advanced Earth Observation Satellite (ADEOS) was launched
on August 17, 1996 on an H-II rocket from the Tangeshima Space Center
in Japan. The launch of the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) on
ADEOS continued the global measurements of ozone that began with the
TOMS instrument on Nimbus-7 and Meteor-3 (1978-1994) and was
coincident with the TOMS instrument on Earth Probe-TOMS. ... The ADEOS
spacecraft was lost on June 30, 1997 and no further TOMS data was
collected from ADEOS.
The ADEOS TOMS data consists of ozone data in Dobson Units,
refelectivity, erythermal ultraviolet (UV) radiation, and aerosol
index. ADEOS data is available from:
and consists of north pole, south pole, and daily global 3-map
composites as well as ASCII data.
ADEOS TOMS data was obtained 3 or 4 times per day and was processed to
ASCII data (in Dobson units).
Nimbus-7, Meteor-3, and EP-TOMS data are also available from:
