. There is circumstantial evidence in these data that cloud optical thickness modulates the SW RFD and CRE during the wet season given the preponderance of clouds and that cloud fraction may be the dominant modulator during the dry season. Obtaining a statistically significant observation of aerosol optical depth is complex because of the large cloud fraction in the region and was not attempted in this study. Perhaps it can be examined in a future study. One undeniable finding of this study is that
