A shortwave radiation database to support GODAE-related activities

Abstract : A new method Heliosat-II was designed for the conversion of spaceborne observations made in the visible range by geostationnary satellites into SW radiation available at ocean level. It offers several improvements in operation and accuracy with respect to previous methods. Typical bias for irradiance for a month is 3 W m-2. A database is being produced, covering the Eastern Atlantic Ocean, Europe and Africa from 1985 onwards and for each day. This database is accessible through the SoDa service on a free basis (
