SIM Data Files Summary

The SORCE SIM Solar Spectral Irradiance (SSI) data product is constructed using measurements from the SIM instruments, which are combined into merged daily solar spectra over the spectral intervals shown in the table below. The SORCE SSI data products are provided on a fixed wavelength scale, which varies in spectral resolution from 1-27 nm over the entire spectral range. Irradiances are reported at a mean solar distance of 1 AU and zero relative line-of-sight velocity with respect to the Sun. Learn more about SORCE SSI data products.
