CERES-MISR Data Products

Level 2: Instantaneous footprint-level (20km nominal) fluxes and cloud properties.

Description: CERES-MISR_MODIS SSF-SSFM: Integrates measurements from Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES), Multi-angle Imaging SpectroRadiometer (MISR), and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS). The resulting data granule contains 2 files: an hour of instantaneous CERES SSF data which includes MODIS data and the matching CERES-MISR Single Scanner Footprint (SSFM) daytime measurements (solar zenith angle < 90 deg). MISR radiances associated with along-track CERES SSF data. Data is only available for along-track days within the temporal coverage.
