ArcticRIMS: NCEP Reanalysis ShortWaveDown Radiation, Aggregated by Administrative Regions

Summary

This dataset contains NCEP Reanalysis ShortWaveDown Radiation Data, Aggregated by Administrative Regions. Gridded daily time step data from Ohio State University based on National Centers for Environmental Prediction/National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCEP/NCAR) reanalysis data, interpolated from the NCEP/NCAR grids (~209km) to the 25km Northern Hemisphere Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grid (EASE-Grid) using a bi-lagrange interpolation formula. As part of the data processing of Arctic Rapid Integrated Monitoring System (ArcticRIMS) based at the Water Systems Analysis Group (WSAG), University of New Hampshire all data sets have been aggregated to multiple temporal and spatial resolutions.

The data is presented in 24 sub-datasets of different spatial and temporal aggregations.
