Bolsée D., Pereira N. BIRA-IASB, 3 avenue Circulaire, 1180 Brussels, Belgium The Solar Spectral Irradiance measurements in the near-infrared spectral region are available from space since 20 years. Ground-based or airborne datasets are also available. Apparent discrepancies not in accordance with the standard uncertainty calculations have been found between the datasets. A review is presented on the instrumental causes of the discrepancies, the absolute calibration and instrument performances, in particular for SOLAR/SOLSPEC onboard the Internal Space Station and for IRESPERAD (ground-based measurements).
