EBAF-TOA Documentation


EBAF-TOA Product Features

  • CERES net balanced Top-of-Atmosphere fluxes, where the global net is constrained to the ocean heat storage term.
  • Spatially interpolates (fills) clear-sky fluxes in non-observed regions.
  • EBAF is for climate model evaluation, estimating the Earth's global mean energy budget and to infer meridional heat transport.
  • EBAF is derived from the SYN1deg product which uses the diurnally complete temporal averaging and the CERES ADMs.
  • EBAF is made available for the Earth Science Grid here, which provides the EBAF satellite observed radiation data for the model and model analysis communities.
