CAMS radiation service


The Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS) radiation service provides time series of Global, Direct, and Diffuse Irradiations on horizontal surface, and Direct Irradiation on normal plane (DNI) for the actual weather conditions as well as for clear-sky conditions. The geographical coverage is the field-of-view of the Meteosat satellite, roughly speaking Europe, Africa, Atlantic Ocean, Middle East (-66° to 66° in both latitudes and longitudes). The time coverage of data is from 2004-02-01 up to 2 days ago. Data are available with a time step ranging from 1 min to 1 month.

The number of requests (via the WPS or via this website) is currently limited to 25 per day. This limit may evolve.

The research leading to these results has received funding from the European Union's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no. 218793 (MACC project, 2009-2011), no. 283576 (MACC-II project, 2011-2014) and from the European Union's H2020 Programme (FP7/2007-2013) under grant agreement no. 633080 (MACC-III project, 2014-2015). The service is part of the Copernicus Atmosphere Monitoring Service (CAMS).

CAMS radiation service has been upgraded to version 3 (bias correction and CAMS McClear version3 model) during the 11 Oct. 2017 release.
