The Atmospheric Science Data Center (ASDC) at NASA Langley Research Center in collaboration with the NASA Energy and Water cycle Study (NEWS) announced the release of the CALIPSO, CloudSat, CERES, and MODIS merged data set (CCCM). The CCCM product provides cloud and aerosol properties derived from CALIPSO, CloudSat, and MODIS, CERES derived TOA shortwave, longwave, and window broadband radiative fluxes, computed radiative heating rates in the atmosphere. The CCCM product is a daily product and 4 months of data (July 2006, October 2006, January 2007, and April 2007) are currently available. More data will be available as the data are processed. Information on the CCCM product can be found at
Or through the CERES data table on the ASDC Web Page
