Dataset specification

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

http://data.g-e-m.dk/datasets?doi=10.17897/AFVE-HV81&column=Short+wave+outgoing+radiation%2c+200+cm+-+5min+average+(W%2fm2) Short wave outgoing radiation, 200 cm - 5min average (W/m2) W/m2 Number Short wave outgoing radiation (wavelengths of 300 to 2800 nm) measured on two proximal climate stations at 200 cm above ground as a 5min average (W/m2). The double masted climate station is located between Badesø and Langsø at 40 m a.s.l.. The timeseries starts in 2008. 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:
