Entry Title: Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Release 3.0 Shortwave daily UTC data in netcdf format

Entry ID: SRB_REL3.0_SW_DAILY_UTC_NC_1
Aerosols Clouds Radiation Budget
Description

The data set contains daily average global fields of eleven shortwave (SW)surface radiative parameters derived with the Shortwave algorithm of the NASAWorld Climate Research Programme /Global Energy and Water-Cycle Experiment(WCRP/GEWEX) Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project.The data is generated using the Pinker/Laszlo shortwave algorithm (R.T. Pinkerand I. Laszlo, 1992: Modeling Surface Solar Irradiance for SatelliteApplications on a Global Scale, J. Appl. Met., 31, 194-211).These parameters were derived originally on a 3-hourly temporal resolution. The3-hourly values are averaged into daily values using a normalization correctionto account for the discretization of the solar cycle. The current version ofthe data is identified as Release 3.0.
