Upwelling (Outgoing) spectral radiance at TOA


Measurement Definition*: Level-1 product. Spectral range 0.2-200 mm. Resolving power l/∆l = 1000. Accuracy quoted as SNR (Signal-to-Noise-Ratio), actually SNR-1 so that smaller figure means better performance, as usual. WMO and IOCCG quote accuracy in [ % ]
