Welcome to the Earthdata User Forum! Here, subject matter experts from several NASA Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAAC) can discuss general questions, research needs and data applications. Users can query how to access, view and interpret the data.
EBAF - Best estimate (net-balanced) TOA fluxes. Evaluation of climate model and energy budget.
ERBE-like - Compares original ERBE(1985 - 1989) fluxes with CERES. No CERES algorithm improvements.
FLASHFLUX - Quicklook near real-time.
ISCCP-D2like - Monthly cloud properties in a similar format to ISCCP.
SSF - Instantaneous footprint radiances, fluxes and MODIS clouds.
TOA fluxes and clouds to compare with A-train (Aqua) products.
TOA fluxes for long term climate trend evaluation, use SSF with associated cloud and aerosol properties.
SSF/SYN1deg-lite - 10 year dataset (2000 - 2010) with an abbreviated parameter list and the latest CERES instrument calibration.
SYN - Best estimate surface fluxes.
Instantaneous footprint level.
