Nimbus High Resolution Infrared Radiometer Digital Swath Data L1, HDF5 V001

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

The Nimbus High Resolution Infrared Radiometer Digital Swath Data L1, HDF data set (NmHRIR1H) consists of High Resolution Infrared Radiometer (HRIR) brightness temperatures obtained by the Nimbus 1, Nimbus 2, and Nimbus 3 satellites during 1964, 1966, and 1969. A correction has been applied to minimize seemingly random alignment errors that caused clouds edges and land features to appear jagged in the original 1960s data.
