|The Earth Radiation Budget Experiment|
This project is designed around three Earth-orbiting satellites: the NASA Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS), and two NOAA satellites. ERBE has helped scientists world-wide better understand how clouds and aerosols, as well as some chemical compounds in the atmosphere ("greenhouse" gases), affect the Earth's daily and long-term weather.The data from these satellites is being used to study the energy exchanged between the Sun, the Earth and space. This site is one of NASA's Fact Sheets, and features a textual description of ERBE.
