Summary
Abstract: The Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet (SBUV) on Nimbus 7 mainly measures
albedos at 12 selected wavelengths in the UV spectrum for the purpose
of deriving atmospheric ozone. In the spectral scan mode, however, it
measures solar irradiances and earth radiances from 160 to 400 nm in
0.2-nm steps, with a 1.1-nm half-width triangular bandpass. Solar
measurements were made once a day (three scans), at ... View entire text
