Characteristics of the Reanalysis and Satellite-Based Surface Net Radiation Data in the Arctic

Figure 6

Two-degree zonal means and seasonal cycle in the Arctic: (a) distribution of the 2° zonal mean by latitude; (b) seasonal cycle of net radiation averaged in the Arctic Circle. In both graphs (a, b), the reanalysis data of ERA5 and NCEP are indicated by blue and green lines, respectively, and satellite-based data as EBAF and GEWEX are indicated by red and yellow lines, respectively.
