Abstract: The NPOESS Aircraft Sounder Testbed - Microwave Temperature Sounder (NAST-MTS) dataset contains information gathered during the Third Convection And Moisture EXperiment (CAMEX -3). NAST-MTS contains two microwave radiometer systems covering the spectral ranges of 50-56 Ghz with nine double-sideband channels centered on the 118.75 Ghz oxygen line, and provides a temperature profile of the atmosphere from the flight altitude (approximately 20km) to the surface.
