There was a small gathering of scientists and calibration specialists that met Feb. 28 – March 1 at NIST in Gaithersburg, Maryland, to address the interesting and conflicting differences for the reported solar spectral irradiance (SSI) variations reported during the SORCE Mission and other missions.
SORCE science team members in collaboration with NIST and NASA GSFC professionals met with other SSI instrument teams and calibration experts to examine these discrepancies by focusing on issues primarily related to understanding degradation trends that affect the measurement of solar cycle variations in irradiance. For more information on this workshop, please see the Workshop Summary post on the SORCE website.
