Title: CERES Monthly Zonal and Global Radiative Fluxes and Clouds
Description:
Abstract:
The Monthly Zonal and Global Radiative Fluxes and Clouds (ZAVG) product contains a month of space and time averaged Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) data for a single scanner instrument. The ZAVG is also produced for combinations of scanner instruments. The space and time average fluxes and cloud parameters on the companion product AVG are spatially averaged from 1-degree regions to 1-degree zonal averages and a global monthly average. CERES is a key component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program. The CERES instruments provide radiometric measurements of the Earth's atmosphere from three broadband channels. The CERES missions are a follow-on to the successful Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) mission. The first CERES instrument (PFM) was launched on November 27, 1997 as part of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM). Two CERES instruments (FM1 and FM2) were launched into polar orbit on board the EOS flagship Terra on December 18, 1999. Two additional CERES instruments (FM3 and FM4) were launched on board EOS Aqua on May 4, 2002. The newest CERES instrument (FM5) was launched on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite on October 28, 2011.
