Scanner and Nonscanner Earth Radiant Exitance and Albedo (S-4, S-4G, S-9, S-10) from ERBS, NOAA-9, and NOAA-10 ERBE

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: Data from the Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS), NOAA-9, and NOAA-10 Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) raw and processed data (RAT and PAT) are used to produce time-space averaged estimates of longwave, shortwave, and net radiant exitance at the top of the atmosphere and albedo.

The regional, zonal, and global average product (S-4, S-4G) contains averages of radiant exitance and ... View entire text
