CERES ISCCP-D2like Legacy
Level 3: Spatially (1°x1° lat/lon regional, 1° zonal, global) and temporally (daily, monthly, etc.) averaged fluxes and clouds.
Description: CERES-MODIS and GEO cloud properties stratified by ISCCP cloud types and in the similar D2 format.
Merged: Terra + Aqua MODIS and 3-hourly geostationary cloud retrievals for daytime only.
GEO: 3-hourly geostationary-only cloud retrievals for daytime only.
Day/Nit: Single satellite MODIS-only cloud retrievals stratified by daytime and nighttime. Nighttime cloud retrievals are based on MODIS IR channels only and may not be of the same quality as the daytime retrievals.
