    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C7019528-LARC_ASDC.xml
    Description:

    CER_ISCCP-D2like-GEO_DAY_Edition3A is the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Geostationary Satellite (GEO) Cloud Retrievals in International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP)-D2like Format Daytime Edition3A data product. Data collection for this product is complete. The Monthly Gridded Cloud Averages (ISCCP-D2like-GEO) data product contains monthly and monthly 3-hourly (GMT-based) gridded regional mean geostationary satellite (GEO) cloud properties as a function of 18 cloud types, similar to the ISCCP D2 product, where the cloud properties are stratified by pressure, optical depth, and phase. The ISCCP-D2like-GEO product is a 5-satellite, daytime 3-hourly GMT, 8-km nominal resolution, geostationary-only cloud product limited to . The ISCCP-D2like-GEO is a daytime-only product, where the cloud retrievals incorporate only the visible and IR channels common to all geostationary satellites for spatial consistency. Each ISCCP-D2like file covers a single month. CERES is a key component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program. The CERES instruments provide radiometric measurements of the Earth's atmosphere from three broadband channels. The CERES missions are a follow-on to the successful Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) mission. The first CERES instrument, protoflight model (PFM), was launched on November 27, 1997 as part of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM). Two CERES instruments (FM1 and FM2) were launched into polar orbit on board the Earth Observing System (EOS) flagship Terra on December 18, 1999. Two additional CERES instruments (FM3 and FM4) were launched on board Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua on May 4, 2002. The CERES FM5 instrument was launched on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite on October 28, 2011. The newest CERES instrument (FM6) was launched on board the Joint Polar-Orbiting Satellite System 1 (JPSS-1) satellite, now called NOAA-20, on November 18, 2017.

  • CERES MODIS and GEO Cloud Retrievals in ISCCP-D2like Format Daytime Edition3A

    Description:

    CER_ISCCP-D2like-Mrg_GEO-MODIS-DAY_Edition3A is the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Geostationary Satellite (GEO) Cloud Retrievals in International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) – Day 2like Format Daytime Edition3A data product. This product is a merge of data from the following platforms and instruments: Spinning Enhanced Visible and Infrared Imager (SEVIRI) on Meteosat Operational Programme 10 (METEOSAT-10); Japanese Advanced Meteorological Imager (JAMI) on The Multi-functional Transport Satellite 2 (MTSAT-2); SEVIRI on METEOSAT-9; Visible and Infrared Spin Scan Radiometer (GMS Series) on (VISSR-GMS) on Geostationary Meteorological Satellite-5 (GMS-5); SEVIRI on METEOSAT-8; Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) I-M IMAGER on Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite 9 (GOES-9); GOES-11 IMAGER on GOES-11; GOES N-P IMAGER on GOES-13; GOES-8 IMAGER on GOES-8; GOES I-M IMAGER on GOES-10; SEVIRI on METEOSAT-7; MODIS on Terra; GOES N-P IMAGER on GOES-14; MVIRI on METEOSAT-5; GOES-12 IMAGER on GOES-12; GOES-15 IMAGER on GOES-15; MODIS on Aqua; JAMI on Multi-functional Transport Satellite 1 Replacement (MTSAT-1R). Data collection for this product is complete. The Monthly Gridded Cloud Averages (ISCCP-D2like-Mrg) data products contain monthly and monthly 3-hourly (GMT-based) gridded regional mean cloud properties as a function of 18 cloud types, similar to the ISCCP D2 product, where the cloud properties are stratified by pressure, optical depth, and phase. The merged (Mrg) product combines daytime cloud properties from Terra-MODIS (10:30 AM local equator crossing time LECT), Aqua-MODIS (1:30 PM LECT), and geostationary satellites (GEO) to provide the most diurnally complete daytime ISCCP-D2like product. The GEO cloud properties have been normalized with MODIS for diurnal consistency. The CERES MODIS-derived cloud properties are not the official NASA MODIS cloud retrievals but are based on the CERES cloud working group retrievals that are also available in other CERES products. The CERES MODIS-derived cloud properties provide coverage from pole to pole. The 3-hourly GMT-based GEO cloud properties come from five satellites at 8 km nominal resolution with limited coverage. The GEO daytime cloud retrievals incorporate only a visible and IR channel common to all geostationary satellites for spatial consistency. The geostationary calibration is normalized to Terra-MODIS. Each ISCCP-D2like file covers a single month. CERES is a key component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program.

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1000000981-LARC_ASDC.xml
    Description:

    The First ISCCP Regional Experiments have been designed to improve data products and cloud/radiation parameterizations used in general circulation models (GCMs). Specifically, the goals of FIRE are (1) to improve basic understanding of the interaction of physical processes in determining life cycles of cirrus and marine stratocumulus systems and the radiative properties of these clouds during their life cycles and (2) to investigate the interrelationships between the ISCCP data, GCM parameterizations, and higher space and time resolution clouddata.To-date, four intensive field-observation periods were planned and executed: a cirrus IFO (October 13 - November 2, 1986); a marine stratocumulus IFO off the southwestern coast of California (June 29 - July 20, 1987); a second cirrus IFO in southeastern Kansas (November 13 - December 7, 1991); and a second marine stratocumulus IFO in the eastern North Atlantic Ocean (June 1 - June 28, 1992). Each mission combined coordinated satellite, airborne, and surface observations with modeling studies to investigate the cloud properties and physical processes of the cloud systems.These files are calculations of the daily solar irradiance at the surface, based on observations by the METEOSAT. The file naming convention is: esqDDMMYYx.fis where DDMMYY is the dateThese files are: I2 pixels, 376 pixels/row, 326 rows. Each pixel has a spatial resolution of 0.04 degrees.The header of each file claims there are two channels, although the provided documentation states that there is only one channel per file.The units are: flux [tenths of Joule/cm^2]

  • Global radiation at the Earth-surface derived from METEOSAT-data (DWD-Archive) from 1994 on.

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214585737-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    Since 1985, the German Meteorological Service DWD (Deutscher Wetterdienst) has been extracting the global radiation from METEOSAT visible data based on a method which was developed by Moeser and Raschke (1984). The method combines results from radiative transfer calculations with cloud information from METEOSAT-VIS data. The area of investigation is Central Europe. The global radiation is one component of the radiation balance at the surface. The radiation balance is an important climate parameter, because it describes part of the ernergy fluxes between the surface and the atmosphere. Information on the global radiation is also needed for agricultural applications and for solar energy research. Product pricing depends on scientific or commercial use. General information about the DWD is provided on Web .

  • Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX) Data (U.S.) at UCAR/JOSS/NOAA/CODIAC

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C1214608907-SCIOPS.xml
    Description:

    The Indian Ocean Experiment (INDOEX) is a focused field experiment in the Indian Ocean with international participation from the United States, Europe, and the Indian Ocean Region. INDOEX addresses questions of climate change that are of high priority and of great value to the US and the international community. The project's goal is to study natual and anthropogenic climate forcing by aerosols and feedbacks on regional and global climate. The three month Intensive Field Phase (IFP) operated from 1 January through March 1999 with research aircraft flights and ship cruises conducted during various times within the IFP. The Operations Center was located in Male, Maldives. More information on the INDOEX Project can be found at the "http://data.eol.ucar.edu/codiac/". For more information on the INDOX data distributed by CODIAC, see: "http://www.joss.ucar.edu/cgi-bin/codiac/projs?INDOEX"
