7 Only one CERES instrument is onboard the Suomi NPP and it has been placed in cross-track 8 mode since launch, it is thus not possible to construct a set of angular distribution models 9 (ADMs) specific for CERES on NPP. Edition 4 Aqua ADMs are used for flux inversions for 10 CERES-NPP measurements. However, the footprint size of CERES-NPP is greater than 11 that of CERES-Aqua, as the altitude of the NPP orbit is higher than that of the Aqua orbit. 12 Furthermore, cloud retrievals from the… CONTINUE READING
