Dataset specification

  • Title: ClimateBasis Zackenberg - Radiation - Net radiation (CNR1) @ 200 cm - 5min average (W/m2)
  • Description: Net radiation is calculated from the four quality checked and combined timeseries of short-, long-, in- and outgoing radiation at 200 cm above ground as a 5min average (W/m2). The double masted climate station is located north of the station at 44 m a.s.l.. The timeseries starts in 2011. Please read the metadata file provided with the data for comments related to the data in this timeseries. 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.

Variables measured / columns in dataset

ID Name Unit Data Type Description Date YYYY-MM-DD Date Date of observation Time HH:MM Time Time of observation (UTC) NR (W/m2) W/m2 Number Data comments: Quality Flag Text Flag assigned during quality control. Flag = "fair" is assigned instead of good to indicate where a value is interpolated, or, where only 1 timeseries has been used where it is normal to take the average of 2 timeseries. Flag = unknown is equivalent to the flag "good" or "fair" and is due a change in proceedures. Work is underway to update these flags.
