Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 6.7 µm Water Vapor Remapped Digital Data Daily L3, HDF5, Version 1

This data set (NmTHIR67-3H) consists of daily, global composites of radiative temperatures measured in the 6.7 µm water vapor window (6.5 µm - 7.0 µm) by the Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer (THIR) onboard the Nimbus 4 satellite. The composites were constructed from Nimbus 4 THIR swath data and show water vapor distribution in the upper troposphere and stratosphere.

This is the most recent version of these data.

How do I convert an HDF5/HDF-EOS5 file into binary format?
To convert HDF5 files into binary format you will need to use the h5dump utility, which is part of the HDF5 distribution available from the HDF Group. How you install HDF5 depends on your operating system. Full instructions for installing and using h5dump on Mac/Unix and... read more
