SGP/SIRS/E1 - Intermittantly missing downwelling diffuse
|DataStreams:||sgpsirs20sE1.a0, sgpsirsE1.00, sgpsirsE1.b1|
Starting on or about 10/26/2005 the downwelling diffuse hemispheric irradiance (Eppley 8-48) instrument had intermittant missing values. Technicians found a loose wire on the instrument connector and repaired it on 4/4/2006. Use global shortwave hemispheric (PSP) component - normal incident component (CosZA*NIP) to calulate diffuse component. Comparison of absolute difference between actual and computed diffuse component values and diffuse standard deviations > 1-2 W/m2 can help filter the noisy diffuse data. There is no standard method.
