The Reflected Shortwave Radiation product will measure the total amount of shortwave radiation that exits the Earth through the top of the atmosphere. The algorithm will use several spectral channels in both the visible and infrared spectrum to measure the Reflected Shortwave Radiation. Information from this product will provide an integral piece of the Earth’s radiation budget, aiding in climate modeling and prediction.
