CERES Data Products


To subset, visually browse, and download CERES data products in netCDF format, click the button in the tables below.

For more information and documentation on a specific product, click on the "Data Product" name. Or as a quick reference, click on the Information Icon icon.



Energy Balanced and Filled (EBAF)
Climate Data Record (CDR) of monthly TOA fluxes and consistent computed surface fluxes and clouds suitable for analysis of variability at the intra-seasonal, inter-annual, and longer time scales.

EBAF-TOA

Monthly and climatological averages of TOA clear-sky (spatially complete) fluxes, all-sky fluxes and clouds, and cloud radiative effect (CRE), where the TOA net flux is constrained to the ocean heat storage.

EBAF-Surface

Monthly and climatological averages of computed surface clear-sky fluxes, all-sky fluxes, and cloud radiative effect (CRE), consistent with the CERES EBAF-TOA fluxes.
