Products Description

SRBAVG

Monthly TOA/Surface Averages (SRBAVG): CERES constant meteorology temporally interpolated TOA fluxes, MODIS clouds and aerosols. Also contains CERES GEO-enhanced temporally interpolated TOA fluxes, parameterized surface fluxes, and 3-hourly GEO cloud properties.

SFC

Regional averages of instantaneous footprint observed TOA fluxes, parameterized surface fluxes, and cloud parameters only for the hours of satellite overpass (from SSF Level2 product).

SSF1deg-Day/Month

CERES temporally interpolated TOA fluxes (constant meteorology) and MODIS clouds.

SSF1deg Ed2.6

CERES temporally interpolated TOA fluxes (constant meteorology) and MODIS clouds.

CERES read software is product dependent. If read software is available, a "read software" tab will appear on the product landing page.
