ARM Climate Research Facility

The Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) user facility has recently released data on their radiative flux analysis study on Macquarie Island. The study successfully calculated clear-sky irradiance in the shortwave and longwave surface fluxes from the measured broadband irradiance.

The data is available for use here at ARM's Data Center. This data can only be accessed by those who have an account with ARM's Data Center. To create an account, click here.
