Group: Summary

   This data set provides incoming shortwave radiation measurements from fourteen 
   stations of the Greenland Climate Network (GC-Net) distributed over the 
   Greenland Ice Sheet. The original data were obtained from the GC-Net and 
   subsequently quality controlled. The data span from 01 January 1995 through 09 
   May 2008. The data set is approximately 15 MB comprised of fourteen Network 
   Common Data Form (netCDF) files. The data are available via FTP.
