This dataset is based on the ISCCP-DX dataset and reprocess the satellite radiative fluxes to a higher spatial and temporal resolution, i.e. 0.5-degree and 3-hourly. The period from 1983 to 2008 will be covered. The reprocessing will provide a better radiation product through incorporating newly available information, e.g., better spectral land surface models and global distribution of aerosols.
