CAMS service for irradiation time series
The Copernicus Atmospheric Monitoring Service (CAMS) provides time series of Global, Direct, and Diffuse Irradiations on horizontal surface, and Direct Irradiation on normal plane (DNI) for the actual weather conditions as well as for clear-sky conditions. The geographical coverage is the field-of-view of the Meteosat satellite, roughly speaking Europe, Africa, Atlantic Ocean, Middle East (-66° to 66° in both latitudes and longitudes). The time coverage of data is from 2004-02-01 up to 2 days ago. Data are available with a time step ranging from 1 min to 1 month. It makes use of the CAMS aerosol, water vapour, ozone information and DLR’s Meteosat Second Generation satellite’s information on cloud physical parameters.
