Radiation Budget
Description

ERBE_S4GN_WFOV_NF_ZG data set contains Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) S-4GN (Nonscanner-only) Wide Field of View Numerical Filter (NF) 5.0 and 10.0 degree Zonal and Global Averages in Hierarchical Data Format.The Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) is a multi-satellite system designed to measure the Earth's radiation budget. The ERBE instruments fly 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 carries both a scanner and a nonscanner instrument package.The ERBE S-4G product contains the same time and space averages of all the individual estimates of radiant flux at the top-of-the-atmosphere for one month and one spacecraft or combination of spacecraft as the S-4N product. The difference between the two products is that S-4N is arranged by region, with all parameters for a region grouped together, while S-4GN presents gridded data, with all regions for a given parameter grouped together.The S-4GN data set consists of nonscanner data processed without scene identification information from the scanner and with the numerical filter cross track enhancement.
