Abstract: Level 1 data set of FY-3A Total Ozone Unit (TOU):

L1 data set contains all TOU sensor data including atmospheric radiance and solar flux for 6 spectral bands,it also contains in-flight calibration data for solar flux and geo location data

Purpose: Level 1 data set of FY-3A Total Ozone Unit (TOU):
The total ozone unit(TOU) is an instrument on board the FY-3 polar orbiting satellite, is designed to provide daily global coverage of the Earth???s total ozone by measuring the solar backscattered ultraviolet at six spectral bands, with 1.1-nm bandpass in average. The TOU also makes periodic measurements of the solar flux by deploying 3 diffusers plate to reflect sunlight to the instrument. The instantaneous field of view (IFOV) is 3.6?? and the spatial resolution is 50km in nadir. Then scanning range is ??55.8?? and scanning set is 3.6??
