Title: Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) S-8 Processed Archival Tape
Description:
Abstract:
ERBE_S8_NAT data set contains Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) S-8 Processed Archival Tape (PAT) Data in Native (NAT) Format. The PAT (S-8) contains ERBE scanner and nonscanner radiometric measurements for one day and one satellite. Estimates of the flux at the TOA based on these measurements are also included. The Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) is a multi-satellite system designed to measure the Earth's radiation budget. The ERBE instruments fly on a mid-inclination National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS) and two sun-synchronous National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellites (NOAA-9 and NOAA-10). Each satellite carries both a scanner and a nonscanner instrument package. The S-8 contains all satellite and viewing geometry, and all scanner and nonscanner radiometric measurements in engineering units with flags defining their validity. It also contains quantities such as scanner measurements corrected to flat spectral responses, the scene identified for each scanner pixel, the estimate of radiant flux at the top of the atmosphere for each scanner pixel, and the estimates of the radiant fluxes from the nonscanner measurements. The data are for a 24 hour period and one satellite. If all three satellites were operational on the same day, three separate S-8s are required for a full set of ERBE data. The data period starts at Greenwich midnight (zero Universal Time) and continues for 24 hours and the period is divided into 16-second intervals.
