Solar Radiation Atlas of Africa: Global and Diffuse Radiation Fluxes at Ground Level Derived from Imaging Data of the Geostationary Satellite METEOSAT 2

Observations cover the continents Africa and Europe, the Middle East and wide regions of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans. Results for the time period (1985-1986) are presented as coloured images and in the form of tables. To ensure the accuracy of these retrieved solar radiation fields at ground level, a comparison with all available ground based pyranometer measurements was made.
