ILAS : Improved Limb Atmospheric Spectrometer
The ILAS instrument, developed by the Japanese Environment Agency (NIES), was launched on the ADEOS 1 satellite on 17 August 1996. It was a visible/infrared spectrometer, recording atmospheric absorption spectra by solar occultation and its main objective was to monitor stratospheric ozone in the polar regions.
Two ILAS data sets are available from Ether for the period from 1996-09-18 to 1997-06-29: data for vertical profiles (level 2) and ancillary data. These data are part of the official output from the ILAS project team.
