Nimbus-7 THIR, CMATRIX, Cloud Data for 1979Apr-1985Mar

| DOI: 10.5065/DEBK-FW87

Temperature Humidity Infrared Radiometer (THIR) radiances together with Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) derived UV reflectivities, climatological temperature lapse rates, and current surface temperature and snow/ice information are used to generate cloud data. The cloud data include daily and monthly total cloud amount, cloud amounts at high, middle and low altitudes, cirrus and deep convective clouds, and cloud and surface radiances.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
