Comparison of Decadal Trends among Total Solar Irradiance Composites of Satellite Observations

Figure 2

Comparison of the TSI results from the ACRIM1, Nimbus7/ERB, ERBS/ERBE experiments and the NSO/Kitt Peak Solar Magnetic Field Strength (SMFS) during the solar cycle 21-22 minimum and the upward trend to and through solar cycle 22 maximum. The effect of degradation for the ERBE sensors during the 1989–1992 maximum is seen in the downward trend of its results relative to the trends of the ERB results and the SMFS that is anticorrelated with the SMFS–TSI paradigm.
