Abstract
Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) instrument, with it's three scanning thermistor bolometers, was designed to provide accurate measurements for the long- term monitoring of Earth's radiation energy budget. The sensors measure broadband radiances in the shortwave (0.3 - 5.0 micrometers), total (0.3 - >100 micrometers) and 8 - 12 micrometer water vapor window regions. Two of the CERES instruments, Flight models 1 and 2 (FM1 and FM2) are scheduled for launch aboard the Earth Science Enterprise Terra Spacecraft in November 1999.
