Summary
Abstract: ACRIMII_TSI_UARS_NAT data are Active Cavity Radiometer Irradiance Monitor II (ACRIM II) Total Solar Irradiance (TSI) aboard the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) Data in Native (NAT) format.

The ACRIMII_TSI_UARS_NAT data product consists of the Level 2 total solar irradiance in the form of daily means gathered by the ACRIM II instrument on the UARS satellite. The daily means are constructed from the shutter cycle results for each day. This data set is considered Version 2.
