Program and organization

Permanent free automatic (wget accesses) for one site

Automatic access to the HelioClim-3 archive radiation data, HC-3 real time and short term forecasts, and MERRA data for the site of the location of the BSRN station of Carpentras (44.083°, 5.059°).

Please, help yourself, and

in case of problem!

Eclipse 20 March 2015

http://astro.ukho.gov.uk/eclipse/0112015/

This eclipse will generate a shadow on the Meteosat Second Generation images. The consequence will be that the HelioClim-3 irradiation values will be strongly overestimated during this lapse of time. Please, pay attention to DISCARD the corresponding slots in the retrieved time series.

TESTIMONIES

User: Mr. Youssef El Aomariyine, PhD student at the International University of Rabat, Morocco, Jan. 2015
"I am a IT PhD student and the topic of my PhD work is 'Prediction of Power Production for Moroccan Solar farms'. The data provided by HelioClim-3v5 greatly help me compare and validate different prediction algorithms. I found the radiation data to be very useful because they provide detailed information, are precise and because they are always available and updated every day.
I would like to thank the SODA Team for the quality of data, their help and their support for scientific research."
