Dataset specification

  • Title: ClimateBasis Disko - Radiation - Short wave incoming radiation @ 200 cm - 5min average (W m⁻²)
  • Description: Incoming shortwave radition, measured at 200 cm above ground, averaged over 5 min interval with time label at end of bin. This timeseries is a continuation of measurements taken at the former town station since 2010. The town station was converted into a GEM climate station in 2016. Radiation:Radiation ClimateBasis Disko:The ClimateBasis programme monitors climate and hydrology in Zackenberg, Kobbefjord and Disko (Qeqertarsuaq) and is run by Asiaq - Greenland Survey. The collected data build base-line information on climate variability and trends for all the other sub-programmes within GEM and serve as a trustworthy foundation for adaptation strategies for the Greenlandic society. The stations are embedded in Asiaq’s extensive climate and hydrology monitoring network. Furthermore, the run-off data is delivered to the World Hydrological Cycle Observing System (WHYCOS) and the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) networks.
