SORCE

The standard data products which are available from the GES DISC include seven level 3 products, five contain solar spectral irradiance (SSI) data and the other two contain total solar irradiance (TSI) data. All SORCE data products are written in an ASCII table format.

Please review the Data Quality Information Summary before using the SORCE data.

 

SORCE level 3 Solar Spectral Irradiance Data Products
Name Description File Sizes
SOR3SIMD_v022
SORCE Level 3 Solar Spectral Irradiance Daily Means
Contains the irradiance data from the SIM (300-2400 nm range at 1-27 nm intervals) instrument. These are averaged to provide daily values of the solar irradiance on a fixed wavelength scale, and normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format
~300 MB
SOR3SOLFUVD_v013
SORCE SOLSTICE FUV Level 3 Solar Spectral Irradiance Daily Means
Contains the irradiance data from the SOLSTICE Far UV (115-180 nm range at 1 nm intervals) instrument. These are averaged to provide daily values of the solar irradiance on a fixed wavelength scale, and normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format
~16 MB
SOR3SOLMUVD_v013
SORCE SOLSTICE MUV Level 3 Solar Spectral Irradiance Daily Means
Contains the irradiance data from the SOLSTICE Mid UV (180-310 nm range at 1 nm intervals) instrument. These are averaged to provide daily values of the solar irradiance on a fixed wavelength scale, and normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format
~32 MB
SOR3XPS6_v010
SORCE XPS Level 3 Solar Spectral Irradiance 6-Hour Means
Contains the irradiance data from the XPS (0.1-27nm, as well as Lyman-alpha 121 nm) instrument. These are averaged to provide 6-hourly values of the solar irradiance on a fixed wavelength scale, and normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format
~5.8 MB
SOR3XPSD_v010
SORCE XPS Level 3 Solar Spectral Irradiance Daily Means
Contains the irradiance data from the XPS (0.1-27nm, as well as Lyman-alpha 121 nm) instrument. These are averaged to provide daily values of the solar irradiance on a fixed wavelength scale, and normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format
~1.5 MB

 

SORCE level 3 Total Solar Irradiance Data Products
Name Description File Sizes
SOR3TSI6 v017
SORCE Level 3 Total Solar Irradiance 6-Hour Means
Contains the total solar irradiance (a.k.a solar constant) data collected by the TIM instrument covering the full wavelength spectrum averaged at 6-hourly intervals. The data are normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format ~2.5 MB (cummulative file, delivered once a month)
SOR3TSID v017
SORCE Level 3 Total Solar Irradiance Daily Means
Contains the total solar irradiance (a.k.a solar constant) data collected by the TIM instrument covering the full wavelength spectrum averaged at daily intervals. The data are normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format
~0.6 MB (cummulative file, delivered once a month)

 

TCTE

The standard data products which are available from the GES DISC include two total solar irradiance (TSI) data. All TCTE data products are written in an ASCII table format compatible with the SORCE data (see above).

 

TCTE level 3 Total Solar Irradiance Data Products
Name Description File Sizes
TCTE3TS6_v002
TCTE Level 3 Total Solar Irradiance 6-Hour Means
Contains the total solar irradiance (a.k.a solar constant) data collected by the TIM instrument covering the full wavelength spectrum averaged at 6-hourly intervals. The data are normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format
~250 kB (cummulative file, delivered once a month)
TCTE3TSID v002
TCTE Level 3 Total Solar Irradiance Daily Means
Contains the total solar irradiance (a.k.a solar constant) data collected by the TIM instrument covering the full wavelength spectrum averaged at daily intervals. The data are normalized to one astronomical unit. ASCII Format
~70 kB (cummulative file, delivered once a month)

 

UARS

The Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite included two solar spectral irradiance measuring instruments: SOLSTICE and SUSIM (total solar irradiance data from ACRIM are available at the NASA Langley Atmospheric Science Data Center). The UARS solar data products are written in a binary record oriented format.

 

UARS level 3BS Solar Spectral Irradiance Data Products
Name Description File Sizes
UARSO3BS_v018
UARS SOLSTICE Level 3BS  Solar Spectral Irradiance Daily Means
