Updates to One Minute Solar Data


This page lists data updates for one minute solar data. This service can be accessed through the one minute solar data page.

One minute solar data is not a real-time product. Data are generally processed at three-monthly intervals, nominally two months after the last date to be processed. For example, while the exact timing may vary, January to March data would normally be processed in May. This delay allows us to detect (and correct if appropriate) longer-term drift in instruments and other errors which only become apparent after some time. It is not currently possible to provide near real-time data.

Update - 13th March 2014

top

An updated data set has been released. The last set of data went up to July 2013 (where available) and the new set is up to November 2014 (where available).

Minimum 1 second direct irradiance (over 1 minute) unavailable in all one minute solar data

In previous data updates affecting all stations and years, the Minimum 1 second direct irradiance (over 1 minute) values in each data file were instead the Maximum 1 second direct irradiance (over 1 minute) statistics for the same time period. The Maximum 1 second (over 1 minute) statistics are correct and duplicated across both fields. As this duplication occurred when the database was created, it will be necessary to reprocess all relevant data, a task which will take a substantial period of time to complete. Please note that as of this data update, the Minimum 1 second direct irradiance (over 1 minute) values have been replaced with blanks. Users will be notified via RSS feed when the updated data becomes available.

Changes to data availability

The operation of eight stations funded by the Solar Flagships Program through Geoscience Australia for a period of 18 months has now ceased for six of the eight stations. Mildura (076031) and Woomera (016001) ceased operation on 30 June 2013; Kalgoorlie (012038) and Geraldton (008315) on 31 August 2013; Cobar (048027) and Learmonth (005007) on 30 November 2013. Townsville (032040) and Longreach (036031) will cease in 2014.

No new stations were added this data release.

Update - 26th August 2013

top

An updated data set has been released. The last set of data went up to April 2013 (where available) and the new set is up to July 2013 (where available).

Reprocessed data

The Bureau's solar instruments are regularly calibrated by comparison to a pair of reference pyrheliometers, which are in turn traceable to the National Radiometric Standards. This quality assurance process detected a change in the sensitivity of the Bureau's reference instruments. As a consequence, the sensitivities of field instruments derived from these references at the Darwin site (014015) have been updated. Global and diffuse irradiance data have been reprocessed using the updated sensitivities, with changes within 4% of the originally released values. The period in question is from 27 May 2009 until 28 May 2013. In addition, approximately four weeks of global and diffuse data between 11 Dec 2006 and 24 Apr 2007 have been removed after additional information has revealed that a suspected lightning strike adversely affected instrumentation at the Darwin site.

Changes to data availability

Data collection of an 18 month record from the eight stations added to the Bureau's Solar and Terrestrial Network since 2012 is near completion. The installation and operation of the eight stations for 18 months was funded by the Solar Flagships Program through Geoscience Australia.

Mildura (076031) and Woomera (016001) reached that milestone on 30 June 2013; Kalgoorlie (012038) and Geraldton (008315) data collection will cease on 31 August 2013; Cobar (048027) and Learmonth (005007) data collection will cease on 30 November 2013; Townsville (032040) and Longreach (036031) will cease in 2014.

No new stations were added this data release.
