NSIDC: Announcing Five New Nimbus Data Sets

last modified Sep 08, 2015 12:11 PM
NSIDC is pleased to announce the release of five new data sets as part of the Nimbus Data Rescue Project. Data sets associated with this project are now archived and distributed by NSIDC. These Level 1 and Level 3 data sets consist of digitized black-and-white film images and infrared radiometer data obtained during the 1960s and 70s by the Nimbus 1, Nimbus 2, and Nimbus 3 satellites.

This NASA data set consists of High Resolution Infrared Radiometer (HRIR) brightness temperatures originally obtained by the Nimbus 1, Nimbus 2, and Nimbus 3 satellites during 1964, 1966, and 1969. The rescued data applies a correction to minimize seemingly random alignment errors that caused clouds edges and land features to appear jagged in the original 1960s data.

 

This NASA data set consists of daily, global image composites constructed from Nimbus 1 (1964) and Nimbus 2 (1966) Advanced VidiconCamera System (AVCS) imagery.

 

This NASA data set consists of daily image composites constructed from Nimbus 1 (1964) and Nimbus 2 (1966) Advanced Vidicon CameraSystem (AVCS) imagery for the region between 60 N and 60 S.

 

This NASA data set consists of daily, global image composites constructed from Nimbus 3 Image Dissector Camera System (IDCS) imagery captured from 23 April, 1969 - 20 January, 1970.

 

This NASA data set consists of daily, global image composites constructed from Nimbus 3 Image Dissector Camera System (IDCS) imagery for the region between 60 N and 60 S. Images were acquired between 23 April, 1969 - 20 January, 1970.

The data are also available through the Data Pool and Reverb through the following link <https://nsidc.org/data/nimbus/order-data.html>. If you
