Abstract
Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) techniques are being used to characterize the relative spectral response, or sensitivity, of scanning thermistor bolometers in the IR region. The bolometers are being used in the clouds and the Earth's radiant energy system (CERES) program. The CERES measurements are designed to provide precise, long term monitoring of the Earth's atmospheric radiation energy budget. The CERES instrument houses three bolometric radiometers, a total wavelength sensor, a shortwave sensor, and an atmospheric window sensor. Accurate spectral characterization is necessary for determining filtered radiances for longwave radiometric calibrations.
