CERES Products — Temporal & Spatial Resolutions


  • The CERES products are global data sets.
  • The temporal resolutions range from Level2 instantaneous measurements to Level3 hourly, daily, and monthly averages.
  • The spatial resolutions range from Level2 satellite field-of-view footprint measurements to Level3 regional, zonal, and global grids.

Products following the icon are available for subset, visually browsing, and downloading in multiple file formats.


CERES Product Resolutions

Level3B Products: Consistency between TOA global net flux and ocean heat storage.
Level3 Products: Spatial and temporally (daily, monthly, etc) averaged fluxes and cloud properties.
Level2 Products: CERES instantaneous footprint level fluxes and cloud properties.
Level1B Products: CERES raw engineering and instantaneous filtered radiances.
