GEWEX SRB Integrated Product (Rel-4) Shortwave Monthly Average by UTC Fluxes

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

GEWEXSRB_Rel4-IP_Shortwave_monthly_utc is the Global Energy and Water Exchanges (GEWEX) Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Integrated Product (Rel-4) Shortwave Monthly Average by UTC data product. It contains global fields of 11 shortwave surface and Top of Atmosphere (TOA), radiative parameters derived with the Shortwave algorithm of the NASA World Climate Research Programme/Global Energy and Water-Cycle Experiment (WCRP/GEWEX) Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project. This version is known as Release 4-Integrated Product. The fluxes include all-sky, clear-sky and pristine-sky TOA upward fluxes, incoming (downward) TOA flux, and all-sky, clear-sky and pristine-sky upward and downward fluxes at surface. Surface PAR, cloud fraction, average solar zenith angle and a status flag of filled fluxes are also included. Inputs to the shortwave algorithm are cloud and radiance information from International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP) HXS, total column precipitable water from ISCCP nnHIRS, Total Solar Irradiance from SORCE TIM, ozone from ISCCP, and MAC V1 aerosol amounts and radiative properties. The temporal range is July 1983 through June 2017. These data are averaged from UTC daily averages. Data collection for this product is complete.
