The data set covers Europe, Africa, the Atlantic Ocean and parts of South America. Known as the CM SAF Surface Radiation MVIRI Data Set 1.0, the accuracy of a few W/M^2 (compared against BSRN) is comparable to or better than global products (such as NASA-GEWEX SRB). The data set is suitable for users seeking fine spatial and temporal resolutions for climate studies, evaluating global or regional models, or estimating potential solar energy production. The data are based on the visible channels of the METEOSAT Visible and Infrared Imager (MVIRI) on the Meteosat First Generation geostationary satellites.</p> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'profiles/composer/unity-profile/themes/unity/templates/field/field--text-long.html.twig' --> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'modules/composer/paragraphs/templates/paragraph.html.twig' --> </div> </div> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'profiles/composer/unity-profile/themes/unity/templates/field/field.html.twig' --> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'profiles/composer/unity-profile/themes/unity/templates/block/block--field-block--field-main-content.html.twig' --> <!-- THEME DEBUG --> <!-- THEME HOOK: 'block' --> <!-- FILE NAME SUGGESTIONS: * block--field-block--field-key-strengths.html.twig * block--field-block--node--climate-dataset--field-key-strengths.html.twig * block--field-block--node--climate-dataset.html.twig * block--field-block--node.html.twig * block--field-block.html.twig * block--layout-builder.html.twig x block.html.twig --> <!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'profiles/composer/unity-profile/themes/unity/templates/block/block.html.twig' --> <div class="block block-layout-builder block-field-blocknodeclimate-datasetfield-key-strengths"> <h2 class="mb-md-2">Key Strengths</h2> <!-- THEME DEBUG --> <!-- THEME HOOK: 'field' --> <!-- FILE NAME SUGGESTIONS: * field--climate-dataset---custom--field-key-strengths.html.twig * field--node--field-key-strengths---custom.html.twig * field--node--climate-dataset--field-key-strengths.html.twig * field--node--field-key-strengths--climate-dataset--default.html.twig * field--node--field-key-strengths--climate-dataset.html.twig * field--node--field-key-strengths.html.twig * field--node--climate-dataset.html.twig * field--field-key-strengths.html.twig x field--text-long.html.twig * field.html.twig --> <!-- BEGIN OUTPUT from 'profiles/composer/unity-profile/themes/unity/templates/field/field--text-long.html.twig' --> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-field-key-strengths field--type-text-long field--label-visually_hidden"> <div class="field__label visually-hidden">Key Strengths</div> <div class="field__items"> <div class="field__item"><p>Fine spatial and temporal resolutions and long record length</p> </div> <div class="field__item"><p>Useful for climate analyses and model evaluation, as well as estimating potential solar energy production</p> </div> <div class="field__item"><p>Accuracy well within range of comparable data sets (e.g. ISCCP;

The data is provided as hourly, daily and monthy means on a regular lon-lat grid with a grid point distance of 0.03 deg. The high temporal and spatial resolution of the dats set is unique.</p> <p>The data set has been validated against surface measurements of the irradiance and the direct irradiance from the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN). The accuracy of the monthly mean solar irradiance has been found to be approx. 8 W/m2, the accuracy of the corresponding direct solar radiation is approx. 11 W/m2. Further information of the validation results can be found in the validation report associated with the data set. Recent assessments of the temporal stability of the data set using surface reference observations from the Global Energy Balance Archive (GEBA) show a high stability in Europe after 1994.</p> <p>The data set can be used to analyse the spatial distribution of surface solar radiation at local scales. The temporal and spatial resolution and the provision of the global and direct surface radiation allow the calculation of the potential of solar energy production. The high spatial resolution and the long time series allows the application of the data for climate model evaluation, incl. regional climate models. The stability of the data allows the detection and quantitfication of anomalies and the assessment of the temporal evolution incl. the determination of trends. The effective cloud albedo is a direct measure of the radiative effect of clouds on the top-of-the-atmosphere solar radiation and, hence, well suited for climate analysis.</p> <p>In general, the validation with surface observations have shown that the data sets tends to overestimate the surface radiation by a few W/m2. The accuracy of the surface radiation is reduced over bright surfaces, due to the reduced effective cloud albedo. There are artificial 'stripes' and 'lines' in data before 1994 (only 'visible' at high spatial resolution) due to undocumented missing lines in the original satellite data. In general, the quality of the data decreases at high viewing angles, i.e., larger than approx. 60 deg, due to the overdetection of clouds at high viewing angles.##</p> </div> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'profiles/composer/unity-profile/themes/unity/templates/field/field--text-long.html.twig' --> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'profiles/composer/unity-profile/themes/unity/templates/block/block.html.twig' --> </main> </div> <!-- END OUTPUT from 'profiles/composer/unity-profile/themes/unity/templates/layout/layout--twocol-section.html.twig' --> Mon, 25 Feb 2013 15:55:00 +0000 ryanj 904 at https://climatedataguide.ucar.edu
