The results were analyzed by using the radiance scale realized by the GSFC 746/ISIC and SSBUV spectroradiometers and the individual spectral responsivity functions for the transfer radiometers to calculate the band-averaged spectral radiance; these results were then compared to the spectral radiances measured by the instruments.
During its eight-day sojourn, SSBUV will once again measure concentrations of ozone, the fragile blanket of gas that protects life on Earth by absorb- ing much of the sun's harmful ultraviolet radiation.
Simultaneous measurements made by the various SSBUV missions and the UARS will allow researchers to assess long-term changes in the ozone concentration in the stratosphere.
