ICID 16 => LONG_DARK_FOURGAINS_BINNINGEIGHT

Illumination:

  • Dark.

Purpose:

  • Dark calibration measurement for determination of electronic gain ratios, binning factor 8 (global).

Location:

  • Eclipse side of the orbit.

Usage:

  • From launch onwards, once per week.

Description:

Dark calibration measurement for determination of electronic gain ratios, binning factor 8 (global). ICID 16 is a measurement with four electronic gains (x1, x4, x10, x40), the corresponding reference measurement with one electronic gain (x1) is ICID 17. The dark measurements are stored in the level-1b calibration data product.
