Suominet Daily Archive

| DOI: 10.5065/B8YK-4D79

This archive includes a global set of Suominet reports updated in irregular intervals. Additionally, FSL network reports are now included in the set. The hourly reports, encoded in netCDF format, include surface pressure, surface temperature, relative humidity, and estimated column precipitable water vapor. Data spans the period from June 2001 to the present. Archived data includes real-time and post-processed reports.

Suominet is a network of ground-based GPS receivers and met packs which are used to estimate column precipitable water vapor, both in the zenith and along slanted ray paths to GPS satellites. Additional information, including a plot of suominet station locations can be found at the COSMIC Suominet site.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
