Abstract:

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.
