HelioClim-3 - for Pay


Limited to users who subscribed an annual subscription. Please  to receive a quotation.

The satellite-derived HelioClim-3 radiation Web service provides time series of all the components of the radiation over a horizontal, fix-tilted and normal plane for the actual weather conditions as well as clear-sky conditions. The values are estimated from satellite imagery (Meteosat Second Generation satellite), and the geographical coverage is Europe, Africa, Atlantic Ocean, Middle East. Spatial resolution is 3 km at Nadir (0°) and is increasing as soon as we get away from this point as depicted on the right hand side illustration. Data are available with a time step ranging from 1 min to 1 month. Temporal coverage of data is 2004-02-01 up to current day-2 for the version 5, and to current d-1 for version 4

  HC3 + MERRA and HC3 + GFS: retrieve HC3 radiation values together with meteorological variables in a single time series!

You will be offered soon the opportunity to add (optional) columns with meteorological variables in the HC3 time series:  temperature, pressure, wind speed, wind direction, and humidity. Between Feb. 2004 and up to a month ago, the meteorological variables will be extracted from the MERRA (NASA) database, and for meteo data afterwards, GFS (NCEP) will be used.
