The SOLRAD network consists of 9 surface radiation monitoring stations and is operated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
Measurements from the SOLRAD stations are stored in daily ASCII text files and can be freely downloaded from the SOLRAD FTP server. Since January 1st 2015, data has been logged as 1-minute averages of 1-second samples. Prior to this, the data was stored as 3-minute averages.
The reader is referred to [HDM96] for background information on the SOLRAD network.
A list all instruments that have been used and their respective calibration coefficients can be found here.
