ERBE_S4GN_WFOV_SF_ZG

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

ERBE_S4GN_WFOV_SF_ZG_1 is the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) S-4GN (Non-scanner) Wide Field of View Shape Factor (SF) 10.0 degree Zonal and Global 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.
