    and for Edwards AFB, CA (723810).

  • 2008-05-12: In the TMY3 User's Manual, Table 1-4 should read:

    Flag Definition
    1 Data modeled using METSTAT or from 1961-1990 NSRDB solar field
    2 Data modeled using SUNY Satellite model (time shifted)


  • 2008-05-15: Updated the TMY3 User's Manual with corrected Table 1-4 as shown above.

  • 2011-03-21: Header records in the TMY3 csv files should have the units on the irradiance data (GHI, DNI, DHI) as Wh/m^2. They are incorrectly labeled as W/m^2.
