The objectives of NIMBUS-7 ERB are 1) to obtain accurate measurements of solar irradiance, monitor its variation in time, and observe the temporal variation of the solar spectrum: and 2) to determine the Earth radiation budget from simultaneous measurements of the incoming solar radiation and the outgoing Earth-reflected and Earth-emitted radiation. The present report describes the calibration procedures used to keep the Nimbus-7 sensor stable to an estimated + percent or better over a year period. During this period, the year-to-year range in the mean solar irradiance was percent. The Earth Radiation Budget (ERB) experiment on the Nimbus-7 spacecraft has 10 solar and 12 Earth fluxFile Size: 3MB. The final Nimbus-7 solar total irradiance values for 16 November December are given here. There will be no more total solar irradiance measurements made by Nimbus Values are in watts per square meter. In contrast to previous data releases, data for . The Nimbus 7 Earth Radiation Budget (ERB) instrument, the Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) ACRIM, the Earth Radia- tion Budget Experiment (ERBE) scanner, and the SME Solar Ultraviolet Spectrometer provide the bulk of the data. A second subdiscipline is Clouds and Radiation.

  The advent of reliable extraterrestrial solar irradiance measurements from satellites has supplied the impetus for new research in solar physics and solar-terrestrial relationships. The records for the principal experiments now extend beyond nine years. The Nimbus-7 measurements began in November and the Solar Maximum Mission (SMM) results started in February Cited by: Make precise and accurate measurements of the total solar irradiance (TSI). These observations are connected to previous TSI measurements to form a long-term record of solar influences on Earth. Establish a precise data set of visible and near infrared solar spectral irradiance (SSI) measurements suitable for future climate studies. Five decades observing Earth’s atmospheric trace gases using ultraviolet and visible backscatter solar radiation from space. Another O 3 monitoring payload of Nimbus 7 was the Solar Backscatter UltraViolet significantly influencing the Earth’s radiation by: 3.   We have compared total solar irradiance from Nimbus-7 with ground-based photometry from the San Fernando Observatory (SFO) for days between June 1 and Decem We have also included in some analyses NOAA-9 SBUV2 data orF radio flux. The Nimbus-7 data are from orbital samples, averaged to the mean time of observation at by: 9.

Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) An experiment to obtain data to study the average radiation budget of the Earth and determine the energy transport gradient from the equator to the poles. Three satellites were flown in different orbits to obtain the data: the Earth Radiation Budget Satellite, ERBS (launched in October ), NOAA-9File Size: 1MB.
