Spare Off-the-Shelf Instrument Continues Solar Output Data with Excellent Results
Greenbelt MD (SPX) Aug 22, 2014
When the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, or NOAA, sponsored the Total solar irradiance Calibration Transfer Experiment, or TCTE, project launched November 2013, the solar science community was relieved a critical 36-year continuity of solar irradiance measurements was saved. This was accomplished by swiftly preparing a spare solar irradiance instrument for spaceflight. "Initial results from TCTE are excellent," said William Denig, NOAA's project scientist for the first Total and S ... read more
