NASA Langley Research Center, the DOE National Renewable Energy Laboratory and several small renewable energy business have developed a meteorological and surface insolation data set. The data set is commercially oriented. The data set contains parameters including surface temperature, cloud and solar geometry information. These data are available free of charge from the NASA Langley Atmospheric Sciences Data Center. This presentation will provide examples of use of these data and instructions for retrieving the data.
