Introduction The data being used in this analysis were produced by the Stratospheric And Mesospiteric Sounder (SAMS), which was flown on the Nimbus 7 satellite. This is a gas correlation limb radiometer which used pressure modulation to achieve spectral selection, and included a channel (B2) which was sensitive to water vapour in the km region, detecting thermal emission from the H20 pure rotation band Cited by: 1.

The purpose of the stratospheric and mesospheric sounder (s.a.m.s.) on Nimbus 7 is to provide similar coverage in time and space for observations of the concentration of a number of important minor constituents in the strato. The stratospheric and mesospheric sounder (s.a.m.s.) instrument was launched on the Nimbus G satellite on 24 October It is designed to measure temperature and concentration profiles of various gases in the height range km by detecting either their thermal emission or, in some cases, resonant scattering of sunlight.

The gases selected, CO2, CO, CH4. The Stratospheric and Mesospheric Sounder (SAMS) aboard Nimbus-7 observes infrared radiation from the atmospheric limb.

Global upper atmosphere temperature profiles and vertical concentrations of H2O, NO, N2O, CH4 and CO2 are derived from these measurements.

The stratospheric and mesospheric sounder (SAMS) on the Nimbus 7 satellite is a limb sounder measuring infrared thermal emission from gases in the earth's atmosphere.

Abstract Thermal emission and solar resonance fluorescence from the atmospheric limb are reported. Global measurements are made of radiation from the molecular species. Welcome to NASA's EOSDIS. NASA's Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) is a key core capability in NASA’s Earth Science Data Systems Program for archiving and distributing Earth science data from multiple missions to users.

One of the most powerful experimental techniques available for research into this problem is infrared remote sensing, and an novel example of this was the Stratospheric and Mesospheric Sounder (SAMS) instrument on the satellite Nimbus 7. This article reviews what has been learned so far using SAMS data, and what remains to be by: Nimbus 7 (also called Nimbus G) was a meteorological satellite.

It was the seventh and last in a series of the Nimbus program. Launch. Nimbus 7 was launched on Octo Stratospheric and Mesopheric Sounder (SAMS) Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer (THIR)Manufacturer: RCA Astrospace.
