CERES Archived HDF Data 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.

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.
