SORCE SOLSTICE Level 3 Lyman-alpha Irradiance As-Measured Cadence V018 (SOR3SOLS_LA_018) at GES DISC

The SORCE SOLSTICE Level 3 Lyman-alpha Irradiance As-Measured Cadence product consists of all measurements of the Lyman-alpha irradiance from the SOLSTICE instrument. The SOLSTICE instrument makes measurements during each daytime orbit portion, 15 orbits per day. A complete solar spectrum is made in about 30 minutes, a quick scan mode in about 5 minutes. The spectral resolution of SOLSTICE is 0.1 nm. The Lyman-alpha data are stored in netCDF files containing a full year of. Each days measurements are in a separate netCDF group. Each group contains variables for irradiance, uncertainty, repeatability, long x-ray flux, short x-ray flux, spacecraft height, latitude, longitude, time, wavelength and target zenith angle, with overr 3000 measurements.
