FY-4A terrestrial solar radiation product data set of the Qinghai Tibet Plateau (2018-2020)

Surface solar irradiance (SSI) is one of the products of FY-4A L2 quantitative inversion. It covers a full disk without projection, with a spatial resolution of 4km and a temporal resolution of 15min (there are 40 observation times in the whole day since 20180921, except for the observation of each hour, there is one observation every 3hr before and after the hour), and the spectral range is 0.2µ m~5.0 µ m. The output elements of the product include total irradiance, direct irradiance on horizontal plane and scattered irradiance, the effective measurement ranges between 0-1500 w / m2. The qualitative improvement of FY-4A SSI products in coverage, spatial resolution, time continuity, output elements and other aspects makes it possible to further carry out its fine application in solar energy, agriculture, ecology, transportation and other professional meteorological services. The current research results show that the overall correlation of FY-4A SSI product in China is more than 0.75 compared with ground-based observation, which can be used for solar energy resource assessment in China.

Monthly mean sunshine duration for the period in the Heihe River Basin (1961-2010)

Based on the data of 21 regular meteorological observation stations in Heihe River Basin and its surrounding areas and 13 national benchmark stations around Heihe River provided by the data management center of Heihe plan, the daily sunshine hours are statistically sorted out and the monthly sunshine hours data of 1961-2010 for many years are calculated. The spatial stability analysis is carried out to calculate the variation coefficient. If the variation coefficient is greater than 100%, the geographical weighted regression is used to calculate the relationship between the station and the geographical terrain factors, and the monthly sunshine hours distribution trend is obtained; if the variation coefficient is less than or equal to 100%, the ordinary least square regression is used to calculate the sunshine hours and the geographical terrain factors (longitude, latitude, elevation, slope, aspect, etc.) of the station )The distribution trend of sunshine hours per month is obtained, and the residuals after removing the trend are fitted and corrected by HASM (high accuracy surface modeling method). Finally, the monthly average sunshine hours distribution of the Heihe River Basin in 1961-2010 is obtained by adding the trend surface results and the residual correction results. Time resolution: monthly average sunshine hours for many years from 1961 to 2010. Spatial resolution: 500M.
