Abstract: This is the CERES-MISR-MODIS_SSF-SSFM_Terra-FM1 data set.

CERES-MISR_MODIS SSF-SSFM data product ntegrates 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 ... View entire text
