CERES EBAF-Surface Monthly Mean Fluxes Edition2.6r
Entry ID: CERES_EBAF-Surface_Ed2.6r

Abstract: The CERES_EBAF-Surface_Edition2.6r data set contains the legacy CERES_EBAF-Surface data. These data require a surface grid correction - see

The Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Energy Balanced and Filled (EBAF) Surface product provides computed monthly mean surface radiative fluxes that are consistent ... View entire text
