Raw and Processed Radiance Data (RAT and PAT) on Optical Disk From Earth Radiation Budget Satellite, NOAA-9, and NOAA-10 ERBE

Abstract: The Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) on board the Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS), NOAA-9, and NOAA-10 satellites consists of two instrument packages: a scanning radiometer with three narrow-field-of-view (NFOV) sensors (0.2-5, 5-200, and 0.2-200 microns) and a nonscanning cavity radiometer which includes two fixed wide FOV sensors that view the entire disk of the Earth, two fixed ...
