  • EMS2017 – An Investigation of Systematic Errors in Solar Radiation for Reanalysis Datasets

    I attended EMS2017 in DCU, Dublin in September 2017. I presented a poster titled “An Investigation of Systematic Errors in Solar Radiation for Reanalysis Datasets”. This included the accuracy of reanalyses to estimate shortwave radiation (SW) compared to station observations, using a selection of standard skill scores. It also shows initial results of a systematic […]
