Dear Colleague,
 
Six new data sets from the Nimbus Data Rescue Project are now available from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). These data sets provide infrared imagery, brightness temperatures, and atmospheric water vapor obtained in 1970-71 by the Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer (THIR) on board the Nimbus 4 satellite. Both swath and gridded data are available. The new data sets include:
 
-Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 11.5 µm Swath L1, HDF5 (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/NIMBUS/NmTHIR115-1H)
 
-Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 11.5 µm Remapped Digital Data Daily L3, HDF5 (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/NIMBUS/NmTHIR115-3H)
 
-Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 11.5 µm Remapped Digital Data Daily L3, GeoTIFF (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/NIMBUS/NmTHIR115-3G)
 
-Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 6.7 µm Water Vapor Swath L1, HDF5 (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/NIMBUS/NmTHIR67-1H)
 
-Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 6.7 µm Water Vapor Remapped Digital Data Daily, HDF5 (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/NIMBUS/NmTHIR67-3H)
 
-Nimbus Temperature-Humidity Infrared Radiometer 6.7 µm Water Vapor Remapped Digital Data Daily, GeoTIFF (DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.5067/NIMBUS/NmTHIR67-3G)
