Monthly Solar Insolation
For More Information
Based on imagery by Jesse Allen, NASA Earth Observatory, based on FLASHFlux data. FLASHFlux data are produced using CERES observations convolved with MODIS measurements from both the Terra and Aqua satellite. Data provided by the FLASHFlux team, NASA Langley Research Center.

Datasets used in this visualization
Terra (Collected with the CERES sensor)
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.See more visualizations using this data set
Aqua Incoming Solar Radiation (Collected with the CERES sensor)
Data from SORCE for the flux magnitude at the Earth's orbit, coupled with solar incidence angles based on CERES measurement locations and timesSee more visualizations using this data set
