Abstract

This talk provided an overview of the MOBY project and the work we are doing now to move the MOBY instrumentation forward into the future. This is the first of 4 talks we gave at this workshop on various aspects of the MOBY project. The values of the MOBY radiometric retrievals of spectral radiance (Lu) and spectral irradiance (Ed, Es) are traceable to NIST reference standards via MLML integrating sphere sources and MLML lamp standards of spectral irradiance. This talk provided an overview of the QA/QC process for MOBY along with an estimate of the environmental uncertainties in the final MOBY product.This talk provided an overview of the 20 year MOBY time series, some of the lessons we have learned and think are important, and the current status of MOBY-Refresh and MOBY-Net.
