Title: Radiative Flux Analysis Product

Abstract

The Radiative Flux Analysis is a technique for using surface broadband radiation measurements for detecting periods of clear (i.e. cloudless) skies, and using the detected clear-sky data to fit functions which are then used to produce continuous clear-sky estimates. The clear-sky estimates and measurements are then used in various ways to infer cloud macrophysical properties. Detailed descriptions of the methodology are given in the papers referenced, and a listing of the derived parameters, are given below.
