Data Information

  Title:
derived WRMC BSRN

  Source_file:
This product is generated from monthly WRMC.BSRN observations

  Conventions:
Please contact Prof. James Randerson (Email: jranders@uci.edu) or Dr. Mingquan Mu (mmu@uci.edu) for any question

  Altitude:
BSRN

  Site_name:
ASP,BAR,BER,BIL,BON,BOS,BOU,BRB,CAB,CAM,CAR,CLH,CNR,COC,DAA,DAR,DOM,DRA,DWN,E13,EUR,FLO,FPE,FUA,GCR,GVN,ILO,ISH,IZA,KWA,LAU,LER,LIN,MAN,MNM,NAU,NYA,PAL,PAY,PSU,PTR,REG,RLM,SAP,SBO,SMS,SOV,SPO,SXF,SYO,TAM,TAT,TIK,TOR,XIA

  Creation_date:
Sun Jun 22 23:50:13 PDT 2014

  Approach:
First I used BSRN Toolbox to extract lwdn (surface downward longwave radiation), lwup (surface upward longwave radiation), swdn (surface downward shortwave radiation) and swup (surface upward shortwave radiation) from raw data files, and saved the data in ascii format, then I calculated surface net radation using lwdn, lwup, swdn and swup and organized all site data together for each month and year and saved them in netcdf files.

  Temporal resolution:
monthly

  General information:
This product was derived from WRMC-BSRN radiation dataset.

  Spatial resolution:
site observations
