Summary
Abstract: ABSTRACT: The Radiation Budget product suite is produced from the primary morning and afternoon Polar Orbiters. Product shows a measure of the longwave radiation emitted (W/m^2) by the earth-atmosphere system to space. The observations are displayed on a one degree equal area map for the day and night.

CURRENTNESS REFERENCE: Ground Condition

SPATIAL DATA ORGANIZATION INFORMATION
