Retrieve and Display CRN Insolation Data
Use this application to display insolation data from NOAA's Climate Reference Network (CRN). The data are in comma-delimited
ASCII text format, with one file for each CRN site that reports pyranometer data:
Avondale, PA 03761 360320 85 m zone 5 6 2 2006 16
PA Avondale 2 N,39.8593,-75.7861,06/02/06 16:00 UTC,475.5,156.4,908,271.4,
This format is different from the online CRN data, which contains all parameters from each site but does not include the
calculated standard deviation for the insolation. We thank the staff at NOAA's Satellite and Information Service, National
Environmental Satellite, Data, and Information Service (NESDIS) for providing the data accessed through this application.
Display options include daily integrated insolation
and hourly max, min, and average insolation values for 1, 2, 4, or 8 days at a time. Clear-sky model values are also
provided for some output options. See here for additional information about how these
values have been generated.
