High spatial resolution (10km) surface solar radiation dataset with by merging sunshine hours over China China (1983-2017)

This data set is a national high-resolution solar radiation data set covering 34 years (1983.7-2017.6), with a resolution of 10 km. The data unit is W / m2. The data set is developed by merging the global high-resolution (3 hours, 10 km) surface solar radiation data set (1983-2017) with isccp-hxg cloud products as the main input, with ground based sunshine duration derived surface solar raidation data from 2261 meteorological stations in China by using the geographic weighted regression method. The validation results show that this dataset can provide more accurate simulation of long-term variability of surface solar radiation than that of gewex-srb, cmsaf-clara-a2 and the isccp-hxg based surface solar radiation product. This data can provide favorable data support for the application and research of long-term change of hydrology in land surface process simulation.

File naming and required software

This data is in NetCDF format and contains 6 variables. The recordid is the record number. RS is the surface solar radiation data. Latitude and longitude are latitude and longitude. Month and year are months and years. For more information about NetCDF, see http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/netcdf.
