SCMR/Nimbus-5 Level 1 Calibrated and Geolocated Radiances V001 (SCMRN5L1RAD) at GES DISC

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

SCMRN5L1RAD is the Nimbus-5 Surface Composition Mapping Radiometer (SCMR) Level 1 Calibrated and Geolocated Radiances data product. SCMR measured (1) terrestrial radiation in the 8.3 to 9.3 micron and 10.2 to 11.2 micron intervals and (2) reflected solar radiation in the 0.8 to 1.1 micron range. Surface composition and sea surface temperatures could be obtained from these measurements. The SCMR had an instantaneous field of view (FOV) of 0.6 mrad, equivalent to a ground resolution of 660 m at nadir. The scan mirror rotated at 10 rps to provide scan lines 800 km wide across the spacecraft track. Data are available from December 11, 1972 through December 30, 1972. A modified version of this instrument, the Heat Capacity Mapping Radiometer, was flown on the Heat Capacity Mapping Mission (HCMM) in 1978.
