This data set (NmIDCS3H) consists of daily, global image composites constructed from Nimbus 3 and Nimbus 4 Image Dissector Camera System (IDCS) imagery captured from 23 April, 1969 - 04 April, 1971. Each composite is provided as a set of three HDF5-formatted files: separate North and South Polar projections in the 5 km Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid) and an equatorial projection in a 10 km equidistant grid for the region between 60 N and 60 S. Browse images are also available.
NOTE: Reverb will be decommissioned in August 2016 and replaced with Earthdata Search. All links to Reverb will be removed in August 2016.
