New CM SAF solar radiation products on EUMETCast soon
New surface solar radiation products from the CM SAF will be available on EUMETCast from 20 August 2020.
24 March 2022
06 August 2020
The products are:
- Daily Mean Surface Incoming Shortwave Radiation (CM-5210, SIS)
- Daily Sum Sunshine Duration (CM-5280, SDU)
- Monthly Sum Sunshine Duration (CM-5280, SDU)
These products are part of the Interim Climate Data Record (ICDR) SEVIRI Surface Solar Radiation dataset, based on SARAH-2 methods. This ICDR is designed to extend the Thematic Climate Data Record (TCDR) SARAH 2.1 continuously in time. Products from the SARAH 2.1 TCDR (available for 1983-2017), together with the corresponding products from the ICDR (available from 2018 onwards), can, therefore, be combined for various climate analysis applications.
To work with the data, CM SAF provides the CM SAF R Toolbox, which is an easy-to-use tool to prepare, analyse, and visualise CM SAF data. The toolbox comes as part of the CM SAF R-package, which is a collection of more than 60 functions for analysis and post-processing of CM SAF netCDF formatted data. For further details see: https://www.cmsaf.eu/R_toolbox.
Access to the archived ICDR data record, more details and documentation (user manual, validation report, ATBD) are available from the ICDR landing page:
More information on the SARAH 2.1 TCDR and access to the archived data record is available from the corresponding DOI landing page:
