CLAES instrument: Cryogenic Limb Array Etalon Spectrometer
The CLAES instrument was launched on the UARS satellite from the Discovery space shuttle on 15 September 1991. The Cryogenic Limb Array Etalon Spectrometer (CLAES) experiment measures temperature profiles, and concentrations of ozone, methane, water vapor, nitrogen oxides, and other important species, including CFCs, in the stratosphere. CLAES also maps the horizontal and vertical distributions of aerosols in the stratosphere.
Two types of data provided:
- level 3AT (temporal selection), lastest versions provided: V7 (H2O, from 1992-01-09 to 1993-05-05) and V9 (from 1991-10-25 to 1993-05-05)
- correlatives data: geopotential, meridional and zonal wind, humidity, temperature.
lastest versions provided: V2 (geopotentiel, temperature) and V1 (others) from 1991-09-12 to 1993-12-31.
