Mean Layer Temperature - RSS

Sample product image of NOAA CDR Mean Layer Temperature -RSS product; it depicts temperature in Kelvin across the globe, ranging from 211.8 to 230.3 Kelvin.

This dataset provides advanced scientific researchers a high quality Climate Data Record (CDR) of Mean Layer Temperatures.

Thermal emission from oxygen molecules measured at different frequencies from microwave sounders define the Mean Layer Temperature CDR. These measurements, dating back to late 1978, provide a crucial element for long-term monitoring of atmospheric temperature, particularly in regions that lack high-quality radiosonde measurements.
