CM SAF Surface Radiation MVIRI Data Set 1.0 - Monthly Means / Daily Means / Hourly Means

Abstract:
The CM SAF Surface Radiation MVIRI Data Set is a satellite-based climatology of the surface irradiance, the surface direct irradiance and the effective cloud albedo derived from satellite-observations from the visible channel of the MVIRI instruments onboard the geostationary Meteosat satellites. The data are available from 1983 to 2005 and cover the region ±70° longitude and ±70° latitude. The products are available as monthly, daily, and hourly averages on a regular latitude/longitude grid with a spatial resolution of 0.03° x 0.03° degrees. The Swiss National Supercomputing Centre (CSCS) is gratefully acknowledged for providing the computational services needed for developing, processing and storing the 23 year long MVIRI-based surface radiation climate data set. Products covered by this are: Effective Cloud Albedo, Surface Incoming Shortwave Radiation, Direct Irradiance at Surface. This is a Thematic Climate Data Record (TCDR). The assigned DOI for this dataset is: 10.5676/EUM_SAF_CM/RAD_MVIRI/V001. An updated version of this data record is available. Users are recommended to use the edition 2.1 of this TCDR (SARAH-2.1, EO:EUM:CM:MULT:SARAH_V002_01).
