Abstract

The objective of the Greenhouse Effect Detection Experiment (GEDEX) was to assemble and document existing data for the analysis of global climate change and to distribute these data to promote further research.Data from GEDEX comprises of a collection of 60+ global climate change datasets assembled on a NASA CD-ROM. Data include surface, upper air and satellite measurements of temperature, solar irradiance, clouds, greenhouse gases, fluxes, albedos, ozone and water vapour plus Southern Oscillation indices and QBO statistics. Specific datasets include the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE), the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), the Stratospheric Aerosol and Gas Experiment (SAGE I and II), the TIROS Operational Vertical Sounder (TOVS), Visible Infrared Spin Scan Radiometer (VISSR) and the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP). Resolution and timespan varies with dataset. This dataset contains Atmospheric constituent measurements.
