Earth Day 2020: CERES Net TOA Radiation
This visualization shows top-of-atmosphere (TOA) net radiation for the Earth, as measured from space by the CERES instrument, for the period of August 2005 to July 2014 (this period was chosen for convenience rather than for scientific significance). The net radiation is the difference between absorbed solar radiation and outgoing longwave radiation.
This visualization was created in part to support Earth Day 2020 media releases.
