REMARKS
The M-AERIs have a NIST-traceable calibration, through a NIST-designed and NIST-characterized laboratory black-body calibration source (see Rice, J. P., J. J. Butler, B. C. Johnson, P. J. Minnett, K. A. Maillet, T. J. Nightingale, S. J. Hook, A. Abtahi, C. J. Donlon, and I. J. Barton, 2004: The Miami2001 Infrared Radiometer Calibration and Intercomparison: 1.
