Dataset Information: Lidar
Abstract: Temperature and ozone density data above about 25km is lidar derived. Lidar is a technology that measures distances by laser targeting to create density maps. Temperature and density below 20-25km (maximum sonde height) is that given by the nearest in time Buffalo radiosonde. Between the maximum sonde height up to around 25km the temperature and density is estimated by interpolating between the sonde and lidar values.
Temporal Extent: From 1951-10-21 to now
