Sunshine Duration Interim Climate Data Record - MSG

Abstract:
This provides the sunshine duration (SDU) Interim Climate Data Record (ICDR) corresponding to the second edition of the Surface Solar Radiation Data Set - Heliosat (SARAH-2) Thematic Climate Data Record (TCDR) and its first extension SARAH-2.1, which cover 1983-2017 (doi:10.5676/EUM_SAF_CM/SARAH/V002_01). This ICDR extends the time series as consistently as possible from 2018 into the present. It is based on of the visible channels of the SEVIRI instruments onboard the geostationary Meteosat satellites and covers the region ±65° longitude and ±65° latitude. The products are available as monthly and daily sums on a regular latitude/longitude grid with a spatial resolution of 0.05° x 0.05° degrees. Validation is provided in Annual Quality Assessment reports, which are published on the CM SAF web pages (www.cmsaf.eu).
