ERBElike (ES4/ES9) Documentation


ERBElike (ES4/ES9) Product Features

  • This product provides CERES observed fluxes that are based on historical algorithms as the original ERBE scanner dataset (1985-1989)
    • Product formats are also consistent
  • Use to compare historical ERBE fluxes to ensure that flux differences are not associated with CERES algorithm improvements
  • Relies on CERES instrument calibration
    • CERES does not have the same instrumentation as ERBE
  • ERBElike fluxes rely on the ERBE ADMs to convert observed radiances into fluxes
  • Diurnal averaging based on constant meteorology at the time of the Terra (10:30LT) or Aqua (13:30LT) overpass times even though strong regional diurnal cycles exist and are not accounted for.
    • The diurnal cycle is taken into account in the SYN1deg product.
  • The realtime ERBElike CV product does not use the official instrument calibration and should not be used in publications
    • Only use for quicklook, do not append to other products
  • The ERBElike input instantaneous footprint level fluxes can be found in the ERBElike Level2 (ES8) product.
  • Applicable Studies:
    • Decadel study consistent with ERBE
