The objective of the Limb Infrared Monitor of the Stratosphere (LIMS) experiment onboard Nimbus 7, was to map the vertical profiles of temperature and the concentration of ozone, water vapor, nitrogen dioxide, and nitric acid in the lower to middle stratosphere range, with extension to the stratopause for water vapor and into the lower mesosphere for temperature and ozone. This experiment was a follow-on to the Limb Radiance Inversion Radiometer (LRIR) flown on Nimbus 6.
