REQUEST PROCEDURE
All datasets are subject of the of the data release guidelines of the BSRN. Thus, they are read account restricted. Only persons who follow the data release guidelines are allowed to use the data. Read accounts can be obtained from Gert König-Langlo (Gert.Koenig-Langlo@awi.de).
Surface In-Situ Networks
The objective of the BSRN is to provide, using a high sampling rate, observations of the best possible quality, for short- and long-wave surface radiation fluxes. These readings are taken from a small number of selected stations, in contrasting climatic zones, together with collocated surface and upper air meteorological data and other supporting observations.
