Data from the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS), which used backscattered ultraviolet radiance to infer total column ozone measurements (gridded daily for the entire globe).This CD-ROM contains the latest version (version 7) of ozone and reflectivity data from the TOMS (Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer) instrument onboard the Russian Meteor-3 spacecraft. Data covering the entire Meteor-3 TOMS lifetime, August 22, 1991 through December 27, 1994, are given as daily files of gridded data, as zonal means, and as overpass data.

|Title||DETAILS NEEDED - COMPUTATION CREATED FOR SATELLITE COMPOSITE. deployed on Meteor-3 satellite|
|Abstract||This computation involved: DETAILS NEEDED - COMPUTATION CREATED FOR SATELLITE COMPOSITE. deployed on Meteor-3 satellite. The Meteor craft are weather observation satellites launched by the USSR. The Meteor satellites were designed to monitor atmospheric and sea-surface temperatures, humidity, radiation, sea ice conditions, snow-cover, and clouds.Meteor-3 was launched on August 15, 1991 from Plesetsk, Russia, and failed on 27th December 1994. Meteor-3 carried the second Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) aloft as the first and the last American-built instrument to fly on a Soviet spacecraft.|
