Earth Radiation Budget Workshop
October 18, 2016 - October 21, 2016
The science teams from the CERES, GERB and ScaRaB missions are pleased to announce a workshop on the Earth Radiation Budget (ERB).
These three satellite missions are dedicated to providing observational data on the Earth’s radiation budget and bring distinct perspectives to the observational problem. CERES provides cloud-aerosol-radiation budget data globally each day from a sun-synchronous orbit. GERB provides very high temporal coverage of the ERB from its geostationary orbit over a limited portion of the Earth, and ScaRaB Megha-Tropiques provides ERB data from a low-inclination orbit giving a unique insight into the tropical atmosphere. The current data from these three missions are being been used for climate monitoring, process studies and model evaluation.
This workshop will bring together the CERES, GERB, and ScaRaB communities with the modelling community. Presentations will explore the current problems related to the Earth Radiation Budget and address the use of these observations for understanding climate and evaluating models.
The workshop will commence with 1.5 days of presentations from the three science teams on instrument, algorithm and validation status, followed by 2.5 days of invited and contributed science presentations from the wider community.
