Short Name:
ERBE_S4GN_WFOV_SF

Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) S-4GN (Nonscanner) Wide Field of View Shape Factor (SF) 10.0 degree Regional Averages

ERBE_S4GN_WFOV_SF_1 is the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) S-4GN (Non-scanner) Wide Field of View Shape Factor (SF) 10.0 degree Regional Averages data set, which is in Hierarchical Data Format (HDF). Data collection for this data set is complete. 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 carried both a scanner and a non-scanner instrument package. The ERBE S-4G product contained the same time and space averages of all the individual estimates of radiant flux at the top-of-the-atmosphere (TOA) for one month and one spacecraft or combination of spacecraft as the S-4N product. The difference between the two products was that S-4N was arranged by region, with all parameters for a region grouped together, while S-4GN presented gridded data, with all regions for a given parameter grouped together. The S-4GN data set consisted of non-scanner data processed without scene identification information from the scanner and with the numerical filter cross track enhancement.
