NOAA Climate Data Record (CDR) of Total Solar Irradiance (TSI), NRLTSI Version 2
Entry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00828


Summary
Abstract: This Climate Data Record (CDR) contains total solar irradiance (TSI) as a function of time created with the Naval Research Laboratory model for spectral and total irradiance (version 2). Total solar irradiance is the total, spectrally integrated energy input to the top of the Earth's atmosphere, at a standard distance of one Astronomical Unit from the Sun. Its units are W per m2. The dataset was ... View entire text

Purpose: The purpose of this Climate Data Record is to provide a continuous and long-term record of total solar irradiance (TSI) for scientists and modelers in the solar, atmospheric and chemistry sciences as well as the energy industry.
