## EARTH GLOBAL MOSAIC OBSERVATIONS WITH NIMS-GALILEO

Abstract:

During the Earth-1 Galileo flyby (December 1990). the Near-Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS) experiment investigated the illuminated side of the Earth in the spectral range 0.7-5.2 μm. Mosaics of the entire terrestrial globe were recorded with a spatial resolution ranging from 100 to 500 km. From these spectra, information is retrieved upon the largescale temperature structure in the stratosphere and in the mesosphere (0-70 km altitude range) from the inversion of the CO2 bands at 4.3 and ...
