14-Day Boxcar Averaged Terra/CERES (Reflected Solar Radiation)

This animation displays one year of Reflected Solar Radiation (RSR) Terra/CERES data (March 1, 2000 to May 25, 2001) with a 14-day boxcar average. Endpoints have the average re-weighted for the smaller amount of data. The data are 2.5 degree resolution.

Data Used:
The CERES instrument aboard many Earth-orbiting satellites records the flow of reflected Solar radiation and reprocessed longwave radiation in the Earth's radiation budget.
Note: While we identify the data sets used in these visualizations, we do not store any further details nor the data sets themselves on our site.
