Summary
Abstract: FLASH_SSF_Terra-FM1-MODIS_Version2G data are legacy near real-time CERES observed TOA fluxes, MODIS clouds, and parameterized surface fluxes, not officially calibrated.

The Fast Longwave and SHortwave Flux (FLASHFlux) data are a product line of the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy Systems (CERES) project designed for processing and release of top-of-atmosphere (TOA) and surface radiative ... View entire text
