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