Full-text available
Observing the Earth radiation budget (ERB) from satellites is crucial for monitoring and understanding Earth’s climate. One of the major challenges for ERB observations, particularly for reflected shortwave radiation, is the conversion of the measured radiance to the more energetically relevant quantity of radiative flux, or irradiance. This conver...

Measurements of mid- to far-infrared nadir radiances obtained from the UK Facility for Airborne Atmospheric Measurements (FAAM) BAe 146 aircraft during the Cirrus Coupled Cloud-Radiation Experiment (CIRCCREX) are used to assess the performance of various ice cloud bulk optical property models. Through use of a minimization approach, we find that th...

A globally complete, high temporal resolution and multiple-variable approach is employed to analyse the diurnal cycle of Earth's outgoing energy flows. This is made possible via the use of Met Office model output for September 2010 that is assessed alongside regional satellite observations throughout. Principal component analysis applied to the lon...

Chapter
This chapter provides a description of the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) experiment, placed in the context of the need for high temporal resolution observations of the Earth's reflected shortwave and outgoing longwave radiation. The GERB instrument design, calibration and data products are outlined in detail, scientific insights gaine...

Full-text available
This study examines the evolution of the GERB-2 and GERB-1 Edition 1 shortwave radiance calibration between 2004–2007 and 2007–2012 respectively, through comparison with CERES instrument FM1 Edition 3A SSF instantaneous radiances. Two periods when simultaneous observations from both GERB-2 and GERB-1 were available, January 13th to February 11th 20...
Article
Interannual variability in spectrally resolved longwave radiances is quantified at a variety of spatial scales using 5 yr of IASI observations. Maximum variability is seen at the smallest scales investigated (10° zonal means) at northern and southern high latitudes across the center of the 15-μm CO2 band. As the spatial scale increases, the overall...
Article
The Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instrument on METEOSAT-8 was the first instrument to measure the broadband reflected solar and emitted longwave radiation from geostationary orbit. Validated GERB Edition 1 products were released to the scientific community in 2006, and are available at approximately 15 minute time resolution for the...
Article
The WMO called for "bringing new missions to operational status" and that "ERB should be measured through a constellation of sensors". A unique opportu-nity exists to host a set of Earth Radiation Budget (ERB) sensors on the Iridium NEXT (NEXT) LEO constellation in a cost effective manner that can deliver these requirements. The NEXT constellation,...
Article
The Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget data record Accurate observations of the Earth's radiation balance can provide us with unique information on the climate and allow us to monitor how it might be changing. However such observations need to achieve demanding absolute accuracy targets and maintain calibration stability over many years if they a...

1] Previously, a method was developed to quantify Saharan dust optical thickness and simultaneously diagnose the cloud-free longwave dust direct radiative effect (LW DRE) over a single surface site using observations from the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) and Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instrument both flyin...

The Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instruments flying on the Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) series of satellites provide a unique tool with which to monitor the diurnally resolved evolution of the top of atmosphere broad‐band radiation fields. In addition, coincident narrow band observations from the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Inf...
Article
Initial results from a study comparing filtered radiance data from the first two Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instruments on board the METEOSAT-8 and -9 satellites are presented. The differences seen between longwave filtered radiances from GERB-1 and -2 are in line with those predicted when considering the known differences in the g...
Article
Whenever possible, intercomparisons of Earth radiation budget data from different spaceborne instruments should be made as they are important steps in the overall validation process. Intercomparisons are also key elements to compile long-term climate datasets by merging data from several instruments. In this study the GERB Edition-1 and CERES Editi...
Article
The method used to estimate the unfiltered longwave broadband radiance from the filtered radiances measured by the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instrument is presented. This unfiltering method is used to generate the first released edition of the GERB-2 dataset. This method involves a set of regressions between the unfiltering factor...

The Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instruments flying on the Meteosat Second Generation series of satellites provide a unique tool with which to monitor the diurnal evolution of top-of-atmosphere broadband radiation fields. GERB products, which have recently been released to the scientific community, include aerosol information in addi...
Article
Full-text available
Saharan dust storms have often been observed from space, but the full impact on the Earth's radiation balance has been difficult to assess, due to limited observations from the surface. We present the first simultaneous observations from space and from a comprehensive new mobile facility in Niamey, Niger, of a major dust storm in March 2006. The re...

The combination of the Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) and the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instruments on Meteosat-8 provides a powerful new tool for detecting aerosols and estimating their radiative effect at high temporal and spatial resolution. However, at present no specific aerosol treatment is performed...

The Valencia Anchor Station (VAS) was set up by the University of Valencia at the natural region of Utiel- Requena Plateau in 2001. The plateau is a large and reasonably homogeneous area suitable for validation of low spatial resolution satellite data and products such as GERB's. In the framework of the EUMETSAT/ESA MSG-RAO Project no. 138 GIST Pro...

This paper describes the planned processing of monthly mean and monthly mean diurnal cycle flux products for the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) experiment. The use of higher-spatial-resolution flux estimates based on multichannel narrowband imager data to improve clear-sky sampling is investigated. Significant improvements in temporal...

To fully attribute differences in cloud forcing between regions, or between models and observations, requires separation of the effects of different cloud types. This can only be achieved using data which resolve both day to day and diurnal variations. Here we propose a method which takes advantage of the high temporal resolution of geostationary d...
Conference Paper
Resolving uncertainties surrounding the nature of future climate change is currently one of the greatest challenges facing mankind. Validation of global climate model (GCM) predictions of the currently much miss-represented cloud radiative feedback requires measurements made from orbit of the Earth Radiation Budget (ERB), specifically targeted at c...

The high degree of cancellation between longwave (LW) and shortwave (SW) cloud radiative forcing (CRF) observed in the Pacific warm pool region has generally been assumed to be a property of all convective regions in the Tropics.
