CEOS Instrument: Total Irradiance Monitor

Agency: NASA
Missions: SORCE
Type:Solar irradiance monitor
Description:Measurement of total solar irradiance directly traceable to SI units with an absolute accuracy of 0.03% abd relative accuracy of 0.001% per year
Spatial Resolution: N/A
Swath Width: Looks at the sun every orbit, providing 15 measurements per day
Wavebands: N/A
Technology: Solar irradiance monitor
Description: Observes radiation coming from the Sun, either integrated (i.e., in the interval 0.2-10 Ám, observed by cavity radiometers) or spectrally resolved (e.g., in the interval 0.2-2 Ám, observed by a spectrometer), or for special features (X-rays, UV, etc,). Applicable in LEO and GEO.
