Research Quality Fluxes
From the table below, select the desired FSU3 turbulent flux products. All files are provided on a one-degree latitude and longitude grid. Files are netCDF format and use the following naming conventions. The global files combine the grids for the Atlantic, Indian, and Pacific oceans into a single netCDF file. In addition we provide access to the Zhang and Rossow ISCCP-FD monthly radiation data set (See below).
Radiative fluxes below are from the ISCCP-FD satellite product and have been re-gridded to match the one-degree FSU3 in-situ product. Shortwave (up and down) and longwave (up and down) at the surface are provided for the same geographic regions covered by the FSU3 Indian, Atlantic, and Pacific products. Note that the re-gridded ISCCP-FD will have values over land, while the FSU3 is an over-water only product.
