SSI Intercomparison Workshop

October 1, 2006

On September 19, 2006, the SORCE instrument team convened a workshop to discuss and intercompare the past, present, and to some extent, the future instruments that have been responsible for defining the space-based spectral irradiance of the Sun. The Earth science and climate communities currently have a need for a standard top of the atmosphere reference spectra covering a very broad portion of the solar spectrum. The workshop was partitioned into morning and afternoon sessions concentrating first on the ultraviolet spectrum and then on the visible and infrared portions of the spectrum. The workshop took place in the San Juan Islands, WA and was the kick off of the SORCE 2006 Science Meeting.
