NASA DC-8 Solar Spectral Flux Radiometer (SSFR) Upwelling and Downwelling Solar Spectral Irradiance Data

Summary

This data set contains NASA DC-8 Solar Spectral Flux Radiometer (SSFR) Upwelling and Downwelling Solar Spectral Irradiance data collected during the Deep Convective Clouds and Chemistry Experiment (DC3) from 11 May 2012 through 22 June 2012. This data set is in ICARTT format. Please see the header portion of the data files for details on instruments, parameters, quality assurance, quality control, contact information, and data set comments.

The data reported are only selected wavelengths, as well as integrated solar irradiance in two ranges (SSFR). Use of these data requires PRIOR OK from the PI. For full SSFR spectra from 350-2150 nm, please contact the PI.
