Malawi - Solar Radiation Measurement Data (2016 - 2018)

Data repository for ground measurements and satellite data from 3 meteorological stations in Malawi. Data contains 1 minute average values for solar radiation levels, air temperature, relative humidity, precipitation, wind speed and atmospheric pressure.

Delivered files:

  • Solar-Measurements_Malawi_sitename_WB-ESMAP_Header - metadata for ground measurements files.

  • Solar-Measurements_Malawi_sitename_WB-ESMAP_Raw - raw ground measurements from datalogger. Do not use for further development.

  • Solar-Measurements_Malawi_sitename_WB-ESMAP_QC - quality checked ground measurements from dataloger.

  • Solar-Measurements_Malawi_WB-ESMAP_SatelliteTS - site adapted time series of satellite data.

  • Solar-Measurements_Malawi_WB-ESMAP_SatelliteTMY - Typical meteorological year data file (P50) based on site adapted time series of satellite data.
