Description: Surface solar irradiance and related products were obtained through the implementation of three generations of an algorithm in "Spatial and temporal variability of global surface solar irradiance" by Bishop and Rossow (1991) (see references below). The information was produced for the SeaWiFS project. The second generation (version 2) datasets (spanning eight years) are now archived at NCAR, and a year of the third generation (version 3) datasets from July 1983 to June 1984 is presently available (see below). Applications of the Bishop and Rossow datasets are found in papers by Mitchell et al. (1991), Liu et al. (1994), and Seager and Blumenthal (1994). The algorithm uses C1 data from the International Satellite Cloud Climatology Project (ISCCP), which combines data from multiple geostationary and polar orbiting meteorological satellites to provide a global view of the occurrence and optical properties of clouds. A high resolution (30-km) dataset obtained from ISCCP DX data is in production and five test days of data are currently available.
