Earth Radiation Budget through Earth Radiation Budget Satellite Wide-field-of-view Nonscanner Observations Edition 4.1

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

ERBE_S10N_WFOV_SF_ERBS_Regional is the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) through Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS) Wide-field-of-view Nonscanner Observations Edition 4.1 data product. Understanding the mean and variability of the Earth's radiation budget (ERB) at the Top-of-Atmosphere (TOA) and surface is a fundamental quantity governing climate variability and, for that reason, NASA has been making concerted efforts to observe the ERB since1984 through two projects: ERBE and Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES), that span nearly 30 years to date. The ERBE MEaSUREs project uses knowledge gained in the last 10 years through CERES data analyses and applies the knowledge to existing data to develop long-term (nearly 30 years) consistent and calibrated data product (TOA irradiances at the same radiometric scale) from multiple missions (ERBS and CERES). This project proposes to produce level 3 surface irradiance products that are consistent with observed TOA irradiances in a framework of 1D radiative transfer theory. Based on these TOA and surface irradiance products, a data product will be developed which contains the contribution of atmospheric and cloud property variability to TOA and surface irradiance variability. All algorithms used in the process are based on existing CERES algorithms. All data sets produced by this project will be available from the Atmospheric Science Data Center.
