Summary
Abstract: Unedited Solar Radiation Data is a historical data set archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). Unedited solar radiation data are archived at NCDC on both microfiche and digital file. These historic data contain hourly and daily totals of unedited global, direct, and diffuse solar radiation. The solar network consists of 26 selected stations operated by the National Weather Service. The unedited hourly and daily totals are accumulated from 1-minute values contained on files received from the NWS stations. The data were run through a gross edit check only.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
