Nimbus High Resolution Infrared Radiometer Remapped Digital Data Daily L3, HDF5
This data set (NmHRIR3H) consists of daily, global composites of High Resolution Infrared Radiometer (HRIR) data obtained by the Nimbus 1, Nimbus 2, and Nimbus 3 satellites during 1964, 1966, and 1969. Each composite is provided as a set of three HDF5-formatted files: separate North and South Polar projections in the 10 km Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid) and an equatorial projection in a 20 km equidistant grid for the region between 60 N and 60 S. Browse images are also available.
