Baseline surface radiation data (1992-2017)

Abstract:
Any user who accepts the BSRN data release guidelines (http://bsrn.awi.de/data/conditions-of-data-release) may ask Amelie Driemel (Amelie.Driemel@awi.de) to obtain an account to download these datasets. Newer data are available at: https://dataportals.pangaea.de/bsrn/ NOTE TO USERS: The best way to view the data is by clicking on "View dataset as HTML", you will then have the possibility to click on the year and station of interest to download the data files. The download format is a .tab file which can be opened with every program which opens txt files. However, if you want to bulk change the file extension there are various ways to do so, e.g. within the command window with the command: ren *.tab *.txt

Download plain xml file

To get the data: go to WIS-Portal
