Shuttle SBUV (SSBUV) Solar Spectral Irradiance V008 (SSBUVIRR) at GES DISC

Version 008 eng
  • Abstract
    The Shuttle Solar Backscatter Ultraviolet (SSBUV) level-2 irradiance data are available for eight space shuttle missions flown between 1989 and 1996. SSBUV, a successor to the SBUV flown on the Nimbus-7 satellite, is nearly identical to the SBUV/2 instruments flown on the NOAA polar orbiting satellites. Data are available in an ASCII text format. UV irradiance data are available for the following days from the eight missions: Flight #1: 1989 October 19, 20, 21 Flight #2: 1990 October 7, 8, 9 Flight #3: 1991 August 3, 4, 5, 6 Flight #4: 1992 March 29, 30 Flight #5: 1993 April 9, 11, 13, 15, 16 Flight #6: 1994 March 14, 15, 17 Flight #7: 1994 November 5, 7, 10, 13 Flight #8: 1996 January 12, 16, 18 The Shuttle SBUV (SSBUV) instrument measured solar spectral UV irradiance during the maximum and declining phase of solar cycle 22. The SSBUV data accurately represent the absolute solar UV irradiance between 200-405 nm, and also show the long-term variations during eight flights between October 1989 and January 1996. These data have been used to correct long-term sensitivity changes in the NOAA-11 SBUV/2 data, which provide a near-daily record of solar UV variations over the 170-400 nm region between December 1988 and October 1994. These data demonstrate the evolution of short-term solar UV activity during solar cycle 22.
