Short Name:
ERBE_S4N_NAT

Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) Nonscanner Regional, Zonal, and Global Averages S-4N data in native format

ERBE_S4N_NAT_1 is the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) Nonscanner Regional, Zonal, and Global Averages S-4N data in native format data set, which contains averages of flux and albedo on regional, zonal, and global scales for non-scanner data processed without scanner scene identification information. Data collection for this data set is complete. The data are represented as 8-bit, 16-bit, and 32-bit integers. ERBE was a multi-satellite system designed to measure the Earth's radiation budget. The ERBE instruments flew on a mid-inclination National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS) and two sun-synchronous National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) satellites (NOAA-9 and NOAA-10). Each satellite carried both a scanner and a non-scanner instrument package. The S-4N contained averages of flux and albedo on regional, zonal, and global scales for non-scanner data. It was available as a combination of all operational spacecraft (ERBS, NOAA-9 and NOAA-10) for the nons-canner wide field-of-view (WFOV) data. The S-4N is a multi-file product which has three files of WFOV numerical filter and three files of WFOV shape factor data. Monthly (day), monthly (hour), daily, and monthly hourly averages are determined for each region.
