Description
The STRATOSPHERIC AND MESOSPHERIC SOUNDER (SAMS) objective was
to observe the limb of the atmosphere through various pressure
modulator radiometers in order to measure vertical
concentrations of H2O, CH4, CO, and NO; observe resonant
scattering of solar radiation in spectral bands H2O, CO2, CO,
and NO; measure the temperature of the stratosphere and
mesosphere to ~90 kilometers altitude; investigate source
function and departure from the thermodynamic equilibrium
