Tropospheric Carbon Monoxide Distribution from the Space Shuttle MAPS Experiment
Entry ID: ZZZ418

Abstract: This data set from the Measurement of Air Pollution from Satellites
(MAPS) experiment which flew on STS-2 in November 1981 and on STS-41G
in October 1984 contains carbon monoxide (CO) values as a function of
time which can be related to longitude and latitude. MAPS on STS-2
took data on only one day but the flight on STS-41G collected data
from October 5 to October 13 (1984). In 1981, MAPS ... View entire text
