source_file: This product is generated from monthly 1 degree CERES EBAF Radiation observations
title: derived CERES EBAF Radiation
Approach: To obtain albedo from CERES EBAF radiation data, I divided total surface upward shortwave (sfc_sw_down_all_mon) by total sky surface downward shortwave (sfc_sw_up_all_mon). Meanwhile, the data were also binned from original 1.0x1.0 resolution to final 0.5x0.5 resolution.
Temporal resolution: monthly
General information: This product was derived from CERES EBAF radiation dataset.
Spatial resolution: 0.5x0.5 degree
