CERES FLASHFlux Rapid Release Level 3 Nominally Calibrated Radiative Fluxes and Clouds Version2G

[ Get Data ]

Abstract: FLASH_TISA_Terra+Aqua_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 fluxes ... View entire text
