What is the resolution of the ERBE data?

ERBE data are available in many different resolutions; ranging from instantaneous satellite footprint data (40km spatial scale), to monthly mean regional averaged gridded data (2.5-degree, 5-degree, and 10-degree grid), to global-monthly mean data. In addition, daily mean regional averages and monthly-hourly regional averages are also available.
