Radiometric Calibrations for the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The earth radiation budget (ERB) experiment is scheduled to be flown aboard the NIMBUS F satellite that is to be launched in mid-1974. This experiment includes channels, to measure solar radiation, earth-reflected radiation (albedo), and earth-emitted long-wave radiation. The calibration techniques and the standards employed are included in the topics of this paper. Problems associated with achieving the desired levels of confidence for a multifaceted, high accuracy satellite experiment are discussed and some results of preliminary calibrations are presented.
