Solar Irradiance

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.
