Paper Abstract

The first CERES instrument has been placed in orbit on the TRMM Spacecraft. This instrument is designed to measure the Earth's radiation budget and also the anisotropy of reflected solar radiation and outgoing longwave radiation. The TRMM orbit and the combination of CERES with other instruments aboard the spacecraft provide a unique opportunity for a number of scientific studies. Results from the on-board calibration system compared well with ground calibrations. Data products include radiant fluxes at the top of the atmosphere', surface reflected solar and longwave radiant fluxes and cloud-radiative interactions.
