The Earth Radiation Budget Experiment. (ERBE) Background. The radiation budgetrepresents the balance between incoming energy from the Sun and outgoing thermal (longwave) and reflected (shortwave) energy from the Earth. In the 's, NASA recognized the importance of improving our understanding of the radiation budget and its effects on the Earth's climate.

Orbital measurements of the earth's radiation budget are being made from several spacecraft launched in the latter part of Three sets of instruments have been designed to measure the incident solar flux, the earth's long‐wave emitted radiation, and the earth's reflected radiation more accurately than have been measured by: The energy entering, reflected, absorbed, and emitted by the Earth system are the components of the Earth's radiation budget. Based on the physics principle of conservation of energy, this radiation budget represents the accounting of the balance between incoming radiation, which is almost entirely solar radiation, and outgoing radiation, which is partly reflected solar radiation and partly. NASA GEWEX Surface Radiation Budget. The World Climate Research Programme’s Global Energy and Water Exchanges program is an integrated program of research, observations, and science activities with the mission to “Observe, understand and model the hydrological cycle and energy fluxes in the Earth’s atmosphere and at the surface.”The NASA/GEWEX SRB project is a key . tion balance of the earth. referred to as the cloud-radiative forcing. Quantitative estim ates of the global distributions of cloud-radiative forcing have been obtained from the spaceborne Earth Radiation B udget E xperim ent (E R B E) launched in For the A pril period, the globalFile Size: 3MB.
Earth Radiation Budget Satellite. The Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS) was a NASA scientific research satellite within NASA's ERBE (Earth Radiation Budget Experiment) Research Program - a three-satellite mission, designed to investigate the Earth 's radiation budget It also carried an instrument that studied stratospheric aerosol and gases. ERBS was launched on October 5, Operator: NASA. The Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE): Using Satellites to Better Understand the Earth's Climate. The Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) is designed aroundthree Earth-orbiting satellites: the NASA Earth Radiation BudgetSatellite (ERBS), and two NOAA satellites. The data from thesesatellites is being used to study the energy exchanged between theSun, the Earth and space. This project is designed around three Earth-orbiting satellites: the NASA Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS), and two NOAA satellites. ERBE has helped scientists world-wide better understand how clouds and aerosols, as well as some chemical compounds in the atmosphere ("greenhouse" gases), affect the Earth's daily and long-term data from these satellites is being used to study. satellite. The Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) experiment is providing the first dedicated measurements of the ERB components from geosta-tionary orbit. The paper describes the science back-ground, the instrument and operations, and presents some of the first data. GERB has been performing very successfully since launch. Anthropogenic changes to our Earth’s climate may.
