Go to the Validation Plot
tool to view, compare, and download CAVE surface observations and/or the CERES SYN1Deg data at the validation sites.
The surface observation page describes the surface data and how it is averaged to
match the CERES SYN data. The SYN page gives a short description of the CERES data
used here and links to more information regarding this data product.
CAVE is an informal record containing radiation and meteorological data for a number of specific sites having
(1) CERES top-of-atmosphere (TOA) broadband observations
in low volume, easy to use, subsets
(2) surface broadband flux measurements from DOE(ARM), NOAA (SURFRAD, GMD, PMEL), and WCRP (BSRN) networks.
