15 September 1993 Solar ground calibration of ScaRaB: preliminary results
Author Affiliations +
The scanner for radiation budget (ScaRaB), a satellite born radiometer for earth radiation budget measurements, is briefly described. The instrument has been calibrated versus the sun by means of a reference diffusor and a pyrheliometer. ScaRaB, the diffusor, and the pyrheliometer as well as a spectrometer are integrated in a newly developed ground calibration unit (GCU). During February of 1993, a successful solar ground calibration campaign took place in Inzana, Tenerife. First results are presented.
