Abstract

From March 30 through April 9, 2001, thirteen radiometers participated in a radiometric measurement comparison at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Goddard Space Fight Center (NASA's GSFC). These radiometers made measurements from the ultraviolet through the shortwave infrared wavelength regions on four sources of uniform radiance. These sources included the Ntaional Institute of Standrds and Technology (NIST) Portable Radiance Source (NPR) (Brown and Johnson 1999), the GSFC Code 920.1 180 cm diameter integrating sphere known as Hardy, the GSFC Code 916 50.8 cm diameter integrating sphere, and a Spectralon panel illuminated by two NIST irradiance standard lamps.
