CM SAF has released a new edition of the Surface Solar Radiation Data Set — Heliosat (SARAH-3) and its corresponding interim climate data record (ICDR). A subset of the parameters, namely daily and monthly products of surface incoming shortwave radiation (SIS) and sunshine duration (SDU), are being provided via EUMETCast from 15 May 2023, in parallel to the parameters from the previous SARAH-2 based ICDR. The parallel dissemination will be stopped at the end of May, at which time the previous ICDR version will no longer be distributed.

The new product version includes important scientific improvements and small, but relevant, technical changes compared to the previous edition of the data record.

Product Temporal resolution Current version New version
SIS Daily mean, monthly mean CM-5210 CM-5211
SDU Daily sum, monthly sum CM-5280 CM-5281
