Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) S-4GN (Nonscanner) Wide Field of View Numerical Filter 5 deg. nested 10 deg. Regional Averages (ERBE_S4GN_WFV_NF_N10)Entry ID: ERBE_S4GN_WFV_NF_N10
Abstract: The ERBE S-4G product contains the same time and space averages of all
the individual estimates of radiant flux at the top-of-the-atmosphere
for one month and one spacecraft or combination of spacecraft as the
S-4N product. The difference between the two products is that S-4N is
arranged by region, with all parameters for a region grouped together,
while S-4GN presents gridded data, with all regions for a given
parameter grouped together.
The S-4GN data set consists of nonscanner data processed without scene
identification information from the scanner and with the numerical
filter cross track enhancement
This data set consists of ERBE Nonscanner wide field-of-view numerical
filter 5.0 degree nested to 10 degree regional averages.
