Work with UW scientists to coordinate production and daily transfer of insolation dataset to HRSL. In addition, the UW cooperators will work on improvements to the existing algorithms, including a) incorporation of more reliable estimates of precipitable water from the NCEP GFS model; b) development of a validation/calibration procedure using pyranometer data from the U.S. Climatological Radiation Network; and c) transitioning of this new insolation algorithm to operations (including documentation).
