Data Set ID: 
NmTHIR67-3G

Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 6.7 µm Water Vapor Remapped Digital Data Daily L3, GeoTIFF, Version 1

This data set (NmTHIR67-3G) consists of daily, global composites of radiative temperatures obtained in the 6.7 µm water vapor window (6.5 µm - 7.0 µm) by the Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer (THIR) on board the Nimbus 4 satellite. The THIR 6.7 µm window was used to map the water vapor distribution in the upper troposphere and stratosphere. Data files are GeoTIFF versions of the HDF-formatted equatorial projection file only from the Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 6.7 µm Water Vapor Remapped Digital Data Daily, HDF5 (NmTHIR67-3H) data set.

This is the most recent version of these data.
