Abstract
The AERONET (Aerosol Robotic Network) global network provides estimations of broadband solar radiative fluxes at the surface and at the TOA (Top-Of-the-Atmosphere). This paper reports on the validation of AERONET flux estimations at the TOA with the CERES (Clouds and the Earth’s Radiant Energy System) instrument. The validation was made at eight AERONET sites worldwide with at least seven years of Level 2.0 and Version 3 data and representatives of mineral dust, biomass burning, background con...
