Paper Abstract

Enhancements which have been made in the Radiometric Calibration Facility (RCF) of the CERES payload are described. These include narrow field blackbody and wide field of view blackbody sources, an active cavity radiometer, and a shortwave reference source. They permit the RCF to calibrate the CERES instruments to better than +/- 0.5 percent absolute radiometric accuracy in the 3.5 to above 50 micron wavelength region and to +/- 1.0 percent in the 0.3-3.5 micron region.
