Help Post:
Hello, I want to consult a question, is the CERES website data, data download, there are two data download location, a CERES Ordering, Subseeting, the Visualization TOOL, another is the CERES at ASDC, I would like to know whether these two data are products of different companies? Or some other difference, what is the difference, and then generally download the CERES data product, need to download from there?
Also more importantly, I would like to know that I need to download the CERES product of a single satellite footprint, if I download it directly from the ASDC, since it is the kind of HDF4 format file, how can I open it?
I sincerely appreciate your help.
