    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.

The CERES missions are a follow-on to the successful Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) mission. The first CERES instrument (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 EOS flagship Terra on December 18, 1999. Two additional CERES instruments (FM3 and FM4) were launched on board EOS Aqua on May 4, 2002. The newest CERES instrument (FM5) was launched on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite on October 28, 2011.

    Description:

    CER_ES8_TRMM-PFM_Edition2 data are ERBE-like instantaneous TOA estimates.The Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) ES-8 data product contains a 24-hour, single-satellite, instantaneous view of scanner fluxes at the top-of-atmosphere (TOA) reduced from spacecraft altitude unfiltered radiances using Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) scanner Inversion algorithms and the ERBE shortwave (SW) and longwave (LW) Angular Distribution Models (ADMs). The ES-8 data also include the total (TOT), SW, LW, and window (WN) channel radiometric data; SW, LW, and WN unfiltered radiance values; and the ERBE scene identification for each measurement. These data are organized according to the CERES 3.3-second scan into 6.6-second records. As long as there is one valid scanner measurement within a record, the ES-8 record will be generated.

  • CERES ERBE-like Monthly Geographical Averages TRMM PFM Edition2

    https://cmr.earthdata.nasa.gov/search/concepts/C4298245-LARC_ASDC.xml
    Description:

    CER_ES4_TRMM-PFM_Edition2 data are CERES instrument TOA fluxes using algorithms identical to those used by ERBE, averaged regionally (2.5??, 5??, and 10?? grid), zonally (2.5??, 5??, and 10??) and globally. The ERBE-like Monthly Geographical Averages (ES-4) product contains a month of space and time averaged Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) data for a single scanner instrument. The ES-4 is also produced for combinations of scanner instruments. For each observed 2.5-degree spatial region, the daily average, the hourly average over the month, and the overall monthly average of shortwave and longwave fluxes at the Top-of-the-Atmosphere (TOA) from the CERES ES-9 product are spatially nested up from 2.5-degree regions to 5- and 10-degree regions, to 2.5-, 5-, and 10-degree zonal averages, and to global monthly averages. For each nested area, the albedo and net flux are given. 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 Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE). CERES is a key component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program.

    Description:

    CER_ES9_TRMM-PFM_Edition2 data are CERES instrument TOA fluxes using algorithms identical to those used by ERBE, regional averages of instantaneous footprint TOA fluxes only for the hours of satellite overpass (from ES-8 Level 2 product).The ERBE-like Monthly Regional Averages (ES-9) product contains a month of space and time averaged Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) data for a single scanner instrument. The ES-9 is also produced for combinations of scanner instruments. All instantaneous shortwave and longwave fluxes at the Top-of-the-Atmosphere (TOA) from the CERES ES-8 product for a month are sorted by 2.5-degree spatial regions, by day number, and by the local hour of observation. The mean of the instantaneous fluxes for a given region-day-hour bin is determined and recorded on the ES-9 along with other flux statistics and scene information. 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 Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE). The ES-9 also contains hourly average fluxes for the month and an overall monthly average for each region. These average fluxes are given for both clear-sky and total-sky scenes. CERES is a key component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program.

    Description:

    CER_FSW_TRMM-PFM-VIRS_Edition2C legacy data are regional averages of instantaneous footprint computed fluxes [TOA, surface, and in-atmospheric (profile)], associated TOA observed fluxes, and cloud parameters only for the hours of satellite overpass (from CRS level2 product).The Monthly Gridded Radiative Fluxes and Clouds (FSW) product contains a month of space and time averaged Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (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 the Top-of-the-Atmosphere (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 component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program.

  • 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:

    The Single Scanner Footprint (SSF) TOA/Surface Fluxes, Clouds and Aerosols product contains one hour of instantaneous Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (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, Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on Terra and Aqua, and Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (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 are much less than the full set of footprints on the CERES ES-8 product. 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.
