Brunetti, M., Simolo, C., Maugeri, M., & Spinoni, J. (2012). 1961–1990 Monthly High-resolution Solar Radiation Climatologies for Italy : Volume 8, Issue 1 (28/02/2012). Retrieved from

Description: Department of Physics, University of Milan, Milan, Italy. We present a methodology for estimating solar radiation climatologies from a sparse network of global radiation and/or sunshine duration records: it allows to obtain high-resolution grids of monthly normal values for global radiation (and for the direct and diffuse components), atmospheric turbidity, and surface absorbed radiation. We discuss the application of the methodology to a preliminary version of an Italian global radiation and sunshine duration data set, which completion is still in progress and present the resulting 1961–1990 monthly radiation climatologies.
