How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Geostationary images have been used frequently in the past 50 years to derive geophysical information. As a complement to all-sky observations, clear-sky counterparts play an important role in the derivation of cloud properties. We investigated ways to improve estimates of top-of-atmosphere (TOA) visible clear-sky images, over the full spatial and...
The CM SAF Top of Atmosphere (TOA) Radiation MVIRI/SEVIRI Data Record provides a homogenised satellite-based climatology of TOA Reflected Solar (TRS) and Emitted Thermal (TET) radiation in all-sky conditions over the Meteosat field of view. The continuous monitoring of these two components of the Earth Radiation Budget is of prime importance to stu...
Within CM SAF, datasets of Top-Of-Atmosphere (TOA) radiation products from the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instruments on the Meteosat Second Generation (MSG) satellites have been released in 2013. Since no GERB instrument was available on the Meteosat First Generation (MFG) satellites, only the period 2004-2011 is covered. As an al...
To characterize the solar radiation in the Benelux countries, a high resolution (0.03◦ x0.03◦) gridded dataset of monthly mean daily cumulated global horizontal solar radiation has been generated at the Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium by combining both in situ measurements and Meteosat-derived global solar surface irradiance estimations....
