The BSRN within the IPY

At the "Eleventh Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) Meeting" in Queenstown, New Zealand, from 13-16 April 2010, the idea came up to make the BSRN more visible within the International Polar Year which took place between March 2007 to March 2009 see http://www.ipy.org/. From the following BSRN stations datasets with relation to the IPY are availabe:

Arctic: Barrow (BAR), Ny-Alesund (NYA),

Antarctic: Georg von Neumayer (GVN), Syowa (SYO), Concordia Station (DOM), South Pole (SPO).

The datasets contain many continuously measured surface radiation fluxes (global, direct, diffuse, reflex, long-wave downward, long-wave upward) averaged over one minute. Additionally, some station offer supplementary datasets like synoptic observations, upper air soundings, dobson values and ceilometer data.

A single link (parent) containing all links (childs) to any of the BSRN-IPY datasets is available at: http://doi.pangaea.de/10.1594/PANGAEA.737668.  Any user who accepts the BSRN data release guidelines may ask Gert König-Langlo to obtain an account to download these datasets.
