ready World Radiation Monitoring Center - Baseline Surface Radiation Network


General Information
The World Radiation Monitoring Center (WRMC) is the central archive of the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN). The BSRN is aimed detecting important changes in the earth's radiation field at the earth's surface which may be related to climate changes. All radiation measurements are stored together with their collocated surface and upper-air meteorological observations and station metadata in an integrated database. In 2004 the BSRN was designated as the global baseline network for surface radiation for the Global Climate Observing System (GCOS). The BSRN stations also contribute to the Global Atmospheric Watch (GAW). Since 2011 the BSRN and the Network for the Detection of Atmospheric Composition Change (NDACC) have reached a formal agreement to become cooperative networks.
