Solar radiation

by alecast » Tue May 10, 2022 2:50 am America/New_York

How can I get the average solar radiation of the latest 20 years for a determinate coordinate?
Thanks

If your coordinate is in North America, the Daymet dataset https://daymet.ornl.gov/ provides gridded estimates of shortwave radiation; defined as: Incident shortwave radiation flux density in watts per square meter, taken as an average over the daylight period of the day for the time period 1980 - present. A single location can be extracted as a csv file from the dataset using the Single Pixel Extraction Tool https://daymet.ornl.gov/single-pixel/ .

Thanks for your feedback but I need the average montly solar radiation of the latest 20 years for a location in Europe.
There's a way to have this data?
Thanks

The NASA POWER website also has solar radiation at the timescale and location you mentioned. https://power.larc.nasa.gov
