[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: CERES_EBAF-TOA_Edition2.8 data are CERES Energy Balanced and Filled (EBAF) Top of the Atmosphere (TOA) Monthly mean fluxes data in netCDF. The data are monthly and climatological averages of TOA clear-sky (spatially complete) fluxes, all-sky fluxes, and cloud radiative effect (CRE), where the TOA net flux is constrained to the ocean heat storage.
