International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) TOVS native
(NAT) data set.
The ISCCP_TOVS_NAT data set contains information concerning the
atmospheric temperature and humidity profiles and the ozone column
abundance. This data set is composed of 3 types of data files, CLIM
MONTHLY which contains the monthly climatological data obtained from
balloon observations, TOVS MONTHLY which ... contains the monthly
climatological data computed from the daily TOVS values, and TOVS
DAILY which contains the daily composite of the TOVS Sounding Product.
The data were collected on a global equal-area grid with the cell area
equivalent to 2.5 deg. latitude/longitude at the equator. The grid
begins at the South Pole with the intersection of the Greenwich
meridian (0 deg. longitude) and the South Pole as a cell corner. For
