Spectral Solar Radiation Data Base Documentation, Vol. I

Table of Contents

Preface and Acknowledgements



The objective of this report is to provide documentation for the spectral solar radiation data base at the Solar Energy Research Institute. The data reside on magnetic tape.


Volume I of this report documents the history, approach, content, and format of the data base. Volume II contains graphs and field notes for each of the spectral data sets. Together, these two volumes should allow users to find and access any particular field of data or desired data subset contained on the magnetic tape.


These data are being released at this point to make the information available to those who have immediate uses or applications. We also intend to create other products and data subsets in the future to illustrate particular applications and analyses.
