    Description:

    [Source: 2D-CloudSat-TRMM Product Description, Cloudsat Data Processing Center, http://www.cloudsat.cira.colostate.edu/ ] + CloudSat Data CloudSat data are copied directly from the 2B-GEOPROF HDF files with no alteration beyond limiting the included scans to the region surrounding the intersection with TRMM PR’s path. The CloudSat data range extends 50 scans to either end of the intersection curtain in order to provide context. The first and last 50 CloudSat scans in each file do not have matching TRMM information. Therefore the TRMM Curtain data correspond with the portion of the CloudSat curtain left with these end scans eliminated. + TRMM Data TRMM data is available in two components: - Curtain data, which contain a basic nearest-neighbor interpolation of the TRMM data on to the CloudSat data’s along track resolution. No height interpolation is performed. The latitude and longitude values provided reference the original latitude and longitude from which the interpolated data originates so it will not generally match up directly with the matching CloudSat curtain scan. - Block data, which is the full TRMM scan swath which encloses the CloudSat - TRMM intersect curtain. The block data is pulled directly from the TRMM source file with no spatial interpolation and is always 59 scans in along track length.

For each region, the daily average flux is estimated from an algorithm that uses the available hourly data, scene identification data, and diurnal models. This algorithm is like the algorithm used for the ERBE. The ES-9 also contains hourly average fluxes for the month and an overall monthly average for each region.

    Description:

    CER_FSW_TRMM-PFM-VIRS_Edition2C is the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Fixed Swath Width (FSW) Monthly Gridded Single Satellite Fluxes (SSF) and Clouds Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) Edition 2C data product. Data was collected by the CERES Scanner and CERES protoflight model (PFM) on the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM) platform. Data collection for this product is complete. CER_FSW_TRMM-PFM-VIRS_Edition2C includes legacy data covering regional averages of instantaneous footprint computed fluxes [Top-of-the-Atmosphere (TOA), surface, and in-atmospheric (profile)], associated TOA observed fluxes, and cloud parameters only for the hours of satellite overpass (from the Clouds and Radiative Swath (CRS) level2 product). The Monthly Gridded Radiative Fluxes and Clouds (FSW) product contains a month of space and time averaged CERES data for a single scanner instrument. The FSW is also produced for combinations of scanner instruments. All instantaneous fluxes from the CERES CRS product for a month are sorted by 1-degree spatial regions and by the Universal Time (UT) hour of observation. The mean of the instantaneous fluxes for a given region-hour bin is determined and recorded on the FSW, along with other flux statistics and scene information. The mean adjusted fluxes at the four atmospheric levels defined by CRS are also included for both clear-sky and total-sky scenes. In addition, four cloud height categories are defined by dividing the atmosphere into four intervals with boundaries at the surface: 700-, 500-, 300-hPa, and TOA. The cloud layers from CRS are put into one of the cloud height categories and averaged over the region. The cloud properties are also column averaged and included on the FSW. CERES is a key Earth Observing System (EOS) program component. The CERES instruments provide radiometric measurements of the Earth's atmosphere from three broadband channels. The CERES missions follow the successful Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) mission. The first CERES instrument, PFM, was launched on November 27, 1997, as part of TRMM.

  • CERES Single Scanner Footprint (SSF) TOA/Surface Fluxes, Clouds and Aerosols TRMM-PFM Edition2B

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C5862896-LARC_ASDC.xml
    Description:

    CER_SSF_TRMM-PFM-VIRS_Edition2B is the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Scanner Footprint (SSF) Top-of-Atmosphere (TOA)/Surface Fluxes, Clouds, and Aerosols Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM)-protoflight model (PFM) Edition2B data product. Data was collected using the CERES PFM instrument on both the TRMM platform. Data collection for this product is complete. CER_SSF_TRMM-PFM-VIRS_Edition2B contains one hour of instantaneous CERES data for a single scanner instrument. The SSF combines instantaneous CERES data with scene information from a higher-resolution imager, such as Visible/Infrared Scanner (VIRS) on TRMM, MODIS on Terra and Aqua, and VIIRS on Suomi-NPP. Scene identification and cloud properties are defined at the higher imager resolution, and these data are averaged over the larger CERES footprint. For each CERES footprint, the SSF contains the number of cloud layers and, for each layer, the cloud amount, height, temperature, pressure, optical depth, emissivity, ice and liquid water path, and water particle size. The SSF also contains the CERES-filtered radiances for the total, shortwave (SW), and window (WN) channels and the unfiltered SW, longwave (LW), and WN radiances. The SW, LW, and WN radiances at spacecraft altitude are converted to Top-of-the-Atmosphere (TOA) fluxes based on the imager-defined scene. These TOA fluxes are used to estimate surface fluxes. On the SSF, only footprints with adequate imager coverage are included, which is much less than the full set of footprints on the CERES ES-8 product. CERES is a key Earth Observing System (EOS) program component. The CERES instruments provide radiometric measurements of the Earth's atmosphere from three broadband channels. The CERES missions follow the successful Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) mission. The first CERES instrument, PFM, was launched on November 27, 1997, as part of the TRMM.
