Abstract

HelioClim-3 is a database containing surface solar irradiance assessed every 15 min from images taken by the Meteosat series of satellites since 2004. It covers Europe, Africa and Atlantic Ocean. In average, comparison with hourly measurements made in meteorological stations yields a correlation coefficient greater than 0.9, a relative root mean square error (rRMSE) around 20% of the mean measured irradiance and a relative mean bias error (rMBE) below 2%. HelioClim-3 can be accessed via the SoDa Service (www.soda- is.org). The availability and quality of HelioClim-3 data should help in performing steps towards a better knowledge of the surface solar irradiance and its variations over recent years.
