Surface PAR, SSR and NR products over the Heihe River basin (2012)

Surface PAR, SSR and NR products over the Heihe River basin (2012)

We produced surface photosynthetic effective radiation (PAR), solar radiation (SSR) and net radiation (NR) products with 1KM resolution in the heihe basin in 2012.The temporal resolution ranges from instantaneous to hourly and daily.Day-by-day ancillary data were also produced, including aerosol optical thickness, moisture content, NDVI, snow cover, and surface albedo.Among them, PAR and SSR use the method of lookup table to directly invert by combining the stationary weather satellite and polar orbit satellite MODIS product.NR was calculated by analyzing the relationship between net short-wave and net surface radiation.Hourly instantaneous products are weighted by average and integral to obtain hourly and daily cumulative products.

File naming and required software

File naming: the data is stored in a grid HDF format, stored in daily folders (such as 2012001), the file is divided into DlySRC, HurSRC, InsSRC, file name "InsSRC.yyyyddd.hhhh.hdf", where yyyy represents the year, DDD represents the date, HHHH represents when, such as inssrc.2012002.0030.hdfRepresents the second day of 2012 solar radiation and net radiation products.
Data reading method: Arcgis, Qgis and other remote sensing software as well as HDF program code and HDF professional software can be used to open and read.Raster images are generated after reading.
