This document is a guide to the data products derived from the measurements made by the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) experiment aboard the Meteor-3 satellite, and processed by the National Aeronautics and Space administration (NASA). It discusses the calibration of the instrument, the algorithm used to derive ozone values from the measurements, uncertainties in the data, and the organization of the data products. The data begins August 22, 1991 and ends December 28, 1994. These data are archived at the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Distributed Active Archive Center (DAAC). Meeor-3 data have been processed independently by the Central Aerological Observatory (CAO) of the Russian State Committee on Hydrometeorology (Hydromet); that processing and its products are not discussed in this document.
