Dataset specification

  • Title: ClimateBasis Zackenberg - Radiation - Short wave incoming radiation @ 200cm - 5min average (W/m2)
  • Description: Short wave incoming radiation, 200cm - 5min average (W/m2) Radiation:Radiation ClimateBasis Zackenberg: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.

The double masted climate station is located north of the station at 44 m a.s.l.. The timeseries starts in 2011. Quality control is performed on both datasets from the double mast system. The combined time series is calculated as an average of the 2 sensors, or if data is missing from 1 sensor the other used in conjunction with a regression. Data comments:
