RAW file extension - Nimbus 7 data file
What is raw file? How to open raw files?
File type specification:
The raw file extension was also used for Nimbus 7 data format.
The Department of Atmospheric Physics has accumulated a valuable archive of atmospheric infra-red radiance measurements from its satellite experiments which started with the Nimbus 4 SCR in 1970.
Originally data was recorded on magnetic tape. The old tapes became unreliable and data was copied to optical discs in 1990. The optical disk media in turn became expensive and unreliable to support.
In 1997 a NERC SEEDCORN grant was awarded to move the data to CD-ROMs which could make the data available on a wide variety of hardware. This opportunity was also used to catalogue and publicise the archive.
This archive is intended as a supplement to that at the British Atmospheric Data Centre which concentrates on retrieved geophysical parameters (Temperatures, volume mixing ratios etc) rather than the radiance data available here. Low level radiance data is less in demand not least because its interpretation requires more knowledge of the details of the instrument making the measurements.
