CERES Time-Interpolated TOA Fluxes, Clouds and Aerosols Daily Terra Edition4A

Version Edition4A eng
  • Abstract
    The Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Single Scanner Footprint One Degree (SSF1deg) Day provides dailly averages of regional constant meteorology temporally interpolated CERES Top of Atmosphere (TOA) fluxes, clouds derived from a co-located imager and aerosols on a 1-degree latitude and longitude grid. This is a single satellite product that uses the primary CERES instrument in cross-track mode. TOA fluxes are provided for clear-sky and all-sky conditions for longwave (LW), shortwave (SW), and window wavelength bands. The incoming solar daily irradiance is from the Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment9 SORCE), Total Solar Irradiance (TSI). The cloud properties are averaged for both day and night (24-hour) and day-only time periods. Cloud properties are stratified into 4 atmospheric layers (surface-700 hPa, 700 hPa - 500 hPa, 500 hPa - 300 hPa, 300 hPa - 100 hPa) and a total of all layers. The aerosols are averaged instantaneous values from the co-located imager. 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 (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.
  • Version Description
    SSF1deg-Day Edition4A leverages algorithm changes to inputs include improved instrument calibration, cloud properties, and Angular Distribution Models (ADMs). A consistent meteorological assimilation data (GEOS 5.4.1) and MODIS radiances and aerosols are based upon Collection5 through January 2017 before changing to Collection 6.Not provided
