Abstract: The Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Energy Balanced and Filled (EBAF) Top of Atmosphere (TOA) product provides monthly mean TOA radiative fluxes. The file provides monthly 1-degree regional, zonal, and global averages of TOA longwave(LW), shortwave(SW), and net(NET) fluxes under clear and all-sky conditions, where the net flux has been constrained to the ocean heat flux term ...
