The ERBS was part of NASA's three-satellite Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE), designed to investigate how energy from the sun is absorbed and re-emitted by the Earth.
Although the ERBS continued to return data from the SAGE II and ERBE instruments, newer spacecraft missions are producing improved data, making the funding for the mission unjustifiable.
The ozone studies for which the ERBS provided data helped to motivate an international community to develop the Montreal Protocol Agreement, resulting in the virtual elimination of CFCs.
