Using IASOA Radiation Datasets

Radiation measurements are a crucial component of the surface energy balance and provide evidence of the impacts of clouds, aerosols, and cryospheric changes.  Seven of the IASOA observatories are current or candidate Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) sites.  These sites must pass the highest quality control to assure the accuracy.  Most IASOA radiation datasets are available through our Data Access Portal, some are soon to be available.  Visit Data->Data-at-a-Glance to access this data.
