Description

The Interim Climate Data Record (ICDR) SEVIRI Surface Solar Radiation Data Set based on SARAH-2 methods is a satellite-based data set of the solar surface irradiance (global radiation) and the surface direct irradiance (direct horizontal and direct normalized) derived from satellite-observations of the visible channels of the SEVIRI instruments onboard the geostationary Meteosat satellites, that is designed to continously extend the SARAH-2 climate data record in time. The ICDR SEVIRI Radiation data covers the time period from 2018 onwards and covers the same region as SARAH-2 (±65° longitude and ±65° latitude). The products are available as monthly, daily means and 30-min instantaneous data (for global radiation only) on a regular latitude/longitude grid with a spatial resolution of 0.05° x 0.05° degrees. The data record is complemented with a comprehensive documentation of the algorithms used and the generation of the data record. Validation report and user guidance are available as well.
