CEOS Instrument: Active Cavity Radiometer Irradiance Monitor

Instrument:ACRIM II
Agency: NASA
Mission: UARS
Status:No longer operational
Type:Solar irradiance monitor
Description:Measurements of solar luminosity and solar constant.Data used as record of ime variation of total solar irradiance, from extreme UV through to infra-red
