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.
