Entry ID: SRB_REL3.0_LPLA_MONTHLY_1
Aerosols Clouds Radiation Budget
Description

The data set contains monthly average global fields of six shortwave (SW)surface radiative parameters derived with the Quality-Check SW (QCSW) algorithmof the NASA World Climate Research Programme /Global Energy and Water-CycleExperiment (WCRP/GEWEX) Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project.The parameters contained in these files are:1. Top-of-atmosphere (TOA)insolation (FTOA)2. Pristine-sky surface insolation (FPRS)3. Clear-sky surface insolation (FCLR)4. All-sky surface insolation (FALL)5. Surface absorbed SW flux (FABS)6. All-sky surface albedo (SALB)These parameters were derived originally on a daily temporal resolution. Monthlyaverages were computed from the daily values. The current version of the datasets is identified as Release 3.0. It covers a period of 24.5 years from July 1983 to December 2007.
