Solar Radiation Data
Solar Radiation data is collected in hourly increments averaged over 60 minutes. The instrument we are using is a Campbell Scientific CS300 Pyranometer. The instrument is mounted about 2.2m above ground and is connected to a CR1000 data logger also from Campbell Scientific. Data is collected every 3-4 days and then transmitted to "home-base". The data is published at the end of every month.
While the Time Series plots show hourly data over an entire month, note that the data set only includes valid data points and that missing data appears as straight line connecting the last acceptable value with the first one after the gap. The data is public domain and no permission is needed for download. We do however kindly ask that you acknowledge the source of the data using the following citation:
