NOAA GOES-R Series Advanced Baseline Imager (ABI) Level 2 Downward Shortwave Radiation: Surface (DSR)

The Downward Shortwave Radiation: Surface product contains an image with pixel values identifying the instantaneous total shortwave irradiance (flux) received at the Earth's surface integrated over the 0.2 to 4.0 um wavelength bandpass. It includes contributions from direct solar radiation attenuated by the atmosphere and from diffuse radiation associated with scattering within the atmosphere. The product includes data quality information that provides an assessment of the downward shortwave radiation: surface data values for on-earth pixels. The units of measure for the downward shortwave radiation: surface value is watts per square meter. The Downward Shortwave Radiation: Surface product image is produced on a global latitude/longitude grid at 0.5 degree resolution for Full Disk, 0.25 degree resolution for CONUS, and 0.05 degree resolution for Mesoscale coverage regions. Product data is produced for geolocated source data to local zenith angles of 90 degrees and solar zenith angles to 90 degrees.
