Title: Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) Regional, Zonal, and Global Averages S-4 data in native format
Description:
Abstract:
ERBE_S4_NAT data set contains averages of flux and albedo on regional, zonal, and global scales for both scanner and nonscanner data in native format. 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-4 contains averages of flux and albedo on regional, zonal, and global scales for both scanner and nonscanner data. It is available as a combination of all operational spacecraft (ERBS, NOAA-9, and NOAA-10) for the scanner data and the wide field-of-view (WFOV) data. It is available as a combination of the ERBS and NOAA-9 spacecraft for medium field-of-view (MFOV) data. The S-4 is a multifile product which has seven files of scanner data; scanner data are of 2.5-degree resolution and each region is nested to 5 and 10 degrees. The S-4 contains five files of MFOV resolution and each region is nested to 10 degrees. Also on the S-4 are three files of MFOV shape factor and three files of WFOV shape factor data, which are 10-degree resolution. Monthly (day), monthly (hour), daily, and monthly hourly averages are determined for each region. The data are represented in 8-, 16-, and 32-bit integers.
