The World Radiation Monitoring Center (WRMC) Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN)

Abstract: [Source: Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) home page, http://www.bsrn.awi.de/ ]

BSRN is a project of the Radiation Panel from the Global Energy and Water Cycle Experiment GEWEX under the umbrella of the World Climate Research Programme (WCRP) and as such is aimed at detecting important changes in the Earth's radiation field at the Earth's surface which may be related to climate changes.

Access Constraints BSRN data can be made available to external users for bona fide
research purposes at no cost. However, use of a particular station's
data and the World Radiation Monitoring Center (WRMC) must always be
explicitly acknowledged.
