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 23:47:22 PDT 2014

  Approach:
First I used BSRN Toolbox to extract swup (surface upward shortwave radiation) from raw data files, and saved the data in ascii format, then I organized all site data together for each month and year and saved them in a netcdf file.

  Temporal resolution:
monthly

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

  Spatial resolution:
site observations
