NOAA/GML SURFRAD RadFlux Analysis Products (Radiation and Cloud), ISS Site
The Radiative Flux Analysis is a technique for using surface broadband radiation measurements for detecting periods of clear (i.e. cloudless) skies, and using the detected clear-sky data to fit functions which are then used to produce continuous clear-sky estimates. The clear-sky estimates and measurements are then used in various ways to infer cloud macrophysical properties. Detailed descriptions of the methodology are given in the papers referenced in the readme files. This dataset includes surface radiation budget, net radiation, global, direct, and diffuse shortwave, upwelling and downwelling longwave, clear-sky radiation variables, cloud fraction, transmissivity, and meteorological parameters from RadFlux Analysis. A listing of the derived parameters can also be found in the readme files.
