Nimbus-4 Backscatter Ultraviolet Experiment Total-Column Ozone Observations

| DOI: 10.5065/SPS9-EA19

The Backscatter Ultraviolet (BUV) Experiment started in April 1970 aboard the Nimbus-4 satellite. The experiment measured ultraviolet radiation at twelve wavelengths globally on the daylight side, and total ozone was inferred from the radiation measurements. This dataset contains those total ozone data up until the BUV instrument reached its end-of-life in 1977.

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.
