Product_Description string 1 The product contains one orbit of estimated top of the atmosphere (TOA) SW and LW fluxes as well as scene identifications and some input data (radiances, angles...). In this product, we have two different TOA fluxes: one derived from SEL algorithm, based on the ERBE ADMs (Suttles et al. 1988, 1989) and corresponding inversion methods (Wielicki and Green 1989)) and one derived from SANN algorithm, ScaRaB Artificial Neural Network. You can fin a description of this approach on Viollier et al. (2009).
