CERES (FLASHFlux Gridded Fluxes – Level 3) data prior to 03/2022

by swesemeyer » Tue Oct 18, 2022 3:59 am America/New_York

Hi,
It looks as if the CERES data prior to March this year has been removed from:

https://opendap.larc.nasa.gov/opendap/CERES/FLASH/TISA/Terra-Aqua_Version4A/contents.html

Are there any plans of making the old data available again or providing an archived version somewhere?

Kind regards,
Steve

@swesemeyer

No current FLASHFlux data is available through EarthData Search since June 6, 2022.
The ASDC is aware of and working to make this data available again. FLASHFlux can be obtained here:

Hi,
I'm not sure I quite follow...

I have no problems access current data (ie everything from the end of March 2022 onwards appears to be available) from

https://opendap.larc.nasa.gov/opendap/CERES/FLASH/TISA/Terra-Aqua_Version4A/2022/

However, the earlier data going back to 2019 or so has disappeared.

Cheers,

Hello @swesemeyer

Since CERES FLASHFLUX is a near-real-time (NRT) collection, the granules are usually made non-public after ~30 to 60 days or are sometimes retired earlier if a granule from the equivalent Science Quality collection corresponding to the same time and footprint as the NRT file is made public.

Hello @swesemeyer

There is not a direct replacement for the NRT products once they are archived, but the Terra-Aqua SYN1deg-Day would be the CERES product that most people use for the surface fluxes.
