The instrument, called the Ozone Mapping Profiler Suite (OMPS), is based on previous instruments, such as the Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) and the Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet
instrument (SBUV/2), which have flown on multiple satellites.
Also this month, one of NASA's frequent fliers - the Shuttle Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet
(SSBUV) experiment-will hitch a ride on a shuttle orbiter for the sixth time.
His rate is comparable to that of an earlier, unpublished analysis of data from the other Nimbus-7 device, the Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet
instrument (SN: 6/28/86, p.404).
Heath, using the Nimbus 7's Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet
(SBUV) instrument, also recently found what may be the first observation of a global drop in ozone (SN: 6/28/86, p.
