Paper Abstract

A Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System instrument (FM2) on board the Terra satellite has been used in field campaigns to provide TOA radiance measurements. Using a special programmable azimuth plan scan (PAPS) mode, a scanner collects data over a specified Earth target or of a prescribed spatial orientation. This paper covers operational aspects of four field campaigns in which FM2 participated in 2008. These include the annual CERES/GERB comparison campaign carried out at the summer and winter solstices, an aerosol campaign over Beijing ran before, during and after Summer Olympics, calibration and validation of GERB radiances at the ground station in Alacar/Spain, and also a bi-weekly true long-track scan for comparison to true nadir instruments.
