ICID 17 => LONG_DARK_ONEGAIN_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 17 is a measurement with one electronic gain (x1), the corresponding reference measurement with four different electronic gains (x1, x4, x10, x40) is ICID 16. The dark measurements are stored in the level-1b calibration data product.
