Global Surface and Atmospheric Radiative Fluxes (FD data)
Entry ID: GISS_FLUX_FC


Summary
Abstract: [Source: NASA/GISS, http://isccp.giss.nasa.gov/projects/flux.html ]

A new version of the upwelling and downwelling, shortwave and longwave
radiative fluxes has been calculated at the top of the atmosphere, in the
atmosphere, and at the surface using a complete radiative transfer model from
the GISS GCM (revised) with improved observations of the physical properties of
the surface, atmosphere, and clouds based on the International Satellite Cloud
Climatology Project (ISCCP) data sets. Results (called the FD datasets) are
obtained every three hours over the whole globe on a 280 km equal-area (EQ)
global grid covering the time period July 1983 through June 2001. The FD
dataset (124 Mbytes per data month) contains these fluxes for full, clear and
overcast (cloudy) sky, along with the input data used in the flux calculations.
The complete FD dataset is available upon request. Contact Dr. William B.
Rossow or Dr. Yuanchong Zhang for further information (see announcement).

Sample FD data products can be viewed or downloaded from the GISS Home
Page. Link to GISS at http://isccp.giss.nasa.gov/projects/flux.html
