Entry Title: Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Release 3.0 QC Longwave 3 hourly Data in Native Format

Entry ID: SRB_REL3.0_LPLA_DAILY_1
Aerosols Clouds Radiation Budget
Description

The data set contains daily average global fields of three longwave (LW) surfaceradiative parameters derived with the Quality-Check LW (QCLW) algorithm of theNASA World Climate Research Programme /Global Energy and Water-Cycle Experiment(WCRP/GEWEX) Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project.There are a total of three parameters in these files as follows:1. Surface Downward Longwave Flux (DLF), 2. Surface Net Longwave Flux (NLF), and3. Surface Longwave Cloud Radiative Forcing (LWCRF).These parameters were derived originally on a 3-hourly temporal resolution(i.e., a global instantaneous gridded field every 3 hours). The 3-hourly valuesare averaged into the daily values given in these files. The current version ofthe data sets is identified as Release 3.0. It covers a period of 24.5 years fromJuly 1983 to December 2007.
