EARTH SYSTEM SCIENCE
From the U.S. Dept.
Energy Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) Program:
The Possible Direct Use of Satellite Radiance Measurements by the [ARM]
Program (DOE/ER-0585T), 64 pp., Mar. 1992. Examines such questions as
what satellites really measure and how well they measure it, what can be done
about the general lack of adequate visible calibration, and the optimal way for
the ARM program to make use of satellite data.
Proceedings of the Second [ARM] Science Team Meeting
(CONF-9110336), 160 pp., Dec. 1992. Contains 19 papers given by ARM participants
(Oct. 1991, Denver, Colo.) on technical issues, experimental design, early site
results and future site locations.
