FY3A SBUS Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Sounder level 1 data set
Entry ID: FY3A_SBUS_L1

Abstract: Level 1 data set of FY-3A Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Sounder(SBUS):

L1 data set contains all SBUS sensor data including atmospheric radiance and solar flux for 12 spectral bands and for 160nm-400nm with step length of 0.21nm,it also contains in-flight calibration data for solar flux and geo location data.

Purpose: Level 1 data set of FY-3A Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Sounder(SBUS):

The Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet Sounder (SBUS) instrument onboard the FY-3 polar orbiting satellite measures the ultraviolet sunlight scattered by the Earth's atmosphere at 12 spectral bands ranging from 252 nm to 340 nm with 1.1nm average bandpass. Measurements at the shortest eight wavelengths are used to estimate ozone ... View entire text
