Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of monthly averaged results of shortwave
Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) and Atmospheric Radiation Budget (ARB),
i.e. the shortwave radiative fluxes absorbed at the surface and in the
atmosphere. They are derived from the Earth Radiation Budget
Experiment (ERBE) data set S-4 and the European Centre for
Medium-range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) analysis archive using the
