Title CERES GEO Cloud Retrievals in ISCCP-D2like Format Daytime Edition3A
Description CER_ISCCP-D2like-GEO_DAY_Edition3A is the Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) Geostationary Satellite (GEO) Cloud Retrievals in International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP)-D2like Format Daytime Edition3A data product. Data collection for this product is complete. The Monthly Gridded Cloud Averages (ISCCP-D2like-GEO) data product contains monthly and monthly 3-hourly (GMT-based) gridded regional mean geostationary satellite (GEO) cloud properties as a function of 18 cloud types, similar to the ISCCP D2 product, where the cloud properties are stratified by pressure, optical depth, and phase. The ISCCP-D2like-GEO product is a 5-satellite, daytime 3-hourly GMT, 8-km nominal resolution, geostationary-only cloud product limited to . The ISCCP-D2like-GEO is a daytime-only product, where the cloud retrievals incorporate only the visible and IR channels common to all geostationary satellites for spatial consistency. Each ISCCP-D2like file covers a single month. CERES is a key component of the Earth Observing System (EOS) program. The CERES instruments provide radiometric measurements of the Earth's atmosphere from three broadband channels. The CERES missions are a follow-on to the successful Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) mission. The first CERES instrument, protoflight model (PFM), was launched on November 27, 1997 as part of the Tropical Rainfall Measuring Mission (TRMM). Two CERES instruments (FM1 and FM2) were launched into polar orbit on board the Earth Observing System (EOS) flagship Terra on December 18, 1999. Two additional CERES instruments (FM3 and FM4) were launched on board Earth Observing System (EOS) Aqua on May 4, 2002. The CERES FM5 instrument was launched on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite on October 28, 2011. The newest CERES instrument (FM6) was launched on board the Joint Polar-Orbiting Satellite System 1 (JPSS-1) satellite, now called NOAA-20, on November 18, 2017.
