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
      collocated with,
  (2) surface broadband flux measurements from ARM, SURFRAD,CMDL, and BSRN networks.
Please read the CAVE overview for a complete introduction to the project.
