FY3A ERM Earth Radiation Measurement level 1 data set
Entry ID: FY3A_ERM_L1

Abstract: FY-3A Earth Radiation Measurement level1data set:

The Earth Radiation Measurement(ERM) onboard FY-3A satellite will observe the earth and atmosphere reflected solar and emitted longwave radiation with narrow FOV scanning and wide FOV nonscanning mode , at the total?0.2-50mm? and short?0.2->3.8mm?band ,the origin data set transmitted to ground system will be calibrated and geolocated ,and transferred to filtered reflected solar and total radiance.

Purpose: FY-3A Earth Radiation Measurement level1data set:

FY-3A ERM level1data set will be applied to generate the level 2 product,the unfiltered reflected solar and emitted longwave flux at the top of atmosphere by earth and atmosphere, then the level 3 product,dayly,10-days and monthly averaged global grided flux. These products will be applied deeply to globally climatic diagnosis and analysis, and the radiation assimulation in climate forecast model.
