The measurement and long-term monitoring of global total ozone by ultraviolet albedo measuring satellite instruments require accurate and precise determination of the Bi-directional Reflectance Distribution Function (BRDF) of laboratory-based diffusers used in the pre-launch calibration of those instruments. To assess the ability of laboratories to provide accurate UltraViolet (UV) diffuse BRDF measurements, a BRDF measurement comparison was initiated by the NASA Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) Project. From December 1998 to September 1999, NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC), TPD TNO (formerly the TNO Institute of Applied Physics), and the Nationa...
