  • Global surface solar irradiance data are derived from ISCCP DX data in 0.5-degree-square boxes. Daily and monthly values of total irradiance, clear sky irradiance, photosynthetically active radiation (PAR, 400-700 nanometers) irradiance, cloud fraction, diffuse fraction of PAR and monthly land water coast ocean mask are the products. The 2.5-degree version 2 results are archived in ds741.0 dataset.
