TWP/SKYRAD/C3 - NIP Failure
Skyrad normal incident shortwave irradiance (NIP) started reporting impossible values for direct normal irradiance starting 16 November approx 2100GMT corresponding to a rain event at the same time. The NIP was replaced fixing the problem. Direct normal data are not recoverable. However, the NIP data can be calculated from the global hemsipherical shortwave and global hemispherical diffuse datastreams by using the following relationship: Global Horizontal = Direct Normal x cos(Z) + Diffuse Horizontal where Z is the zenith angle.
Direct normal data are not recoverable. Disregard this data.
