The Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Instrument measured the intensity of solar radiation scattered back from the atmosphere, thereby revealing ozone concentration. The Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer was designed to scan the planet's surface from horizon to horizon and map the total ozone in Earth's upper atmosphere. The SBUV/TOMS were mounted together. The instruments were developed for the Nimbus G weather satellite and were (as of September 1977) scheduled to launch in 1978.
