The new AER solar irradiance model is based on the NRLSSI2 model (Lean and Woods, 2010). This model has three
components: a temporally unvarying term, constructed by merging together high resolution Toon transmittance and
Kurucz solar irradiance with the coarser irradiance values from the NRLSSI2 model; and facular brightening and
sunspot darkening terms from the NRLSSI2 model. See SOLAR IRRADIANCE What's
New for details.
