Shuttle SBUV (SSBUV) Solar Spectral Irradiance V008 (SSBUVIRR) at GES DISCEntry ID: GES_DISC_SSBUVIRR_V008
Abstract: Shuttle Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet (SSBUV) is flown on eight shuttle missions. SSBUV, a successor to the SBUV flown on the Nimbus-7 satellite, is nearly identical to the SBUV/2 instruments flying on the NOAA satellites.
The Shuttle SBUV (SSBUV) and NOAA-11 SBUV/2 instruments measured solar spectral UV irradiance during the maximum and declining phase of solar cycle 22. ... The SSBUV data accurately represent the absolute solar UV irradiance between 200–405 nm, and also show the long-term variations during eight flights between October 1989 and January 1996. These data have been used to correct long-term sensitivity changes in the NOAA-11 SBUV/2 data, which provide a near-daily record of solar UV variations over the 170–400 nm region between December 1988 and October 1994. These data demonstrate the evolution of short-term solar UV activity during solar cycle 22. ftp://disc1.gsfc.nasa.gov/data/ssbuv/ssbuvirr/
Ozone profiles in the upper atmosphere as well as the total column ozone values are also retrieved from measured spectral ultraviolet radiances backscattered from the earth-atmosphere. http://www.gsfc.nasa.gov/gsfc/service/gallery/fact_sheets/earthsci/...
Data can be downloaded from GES DISC Data distribution system "Mirador"
and from ftp site of heritage datasets.
