Instantaneous Global Horizontal Irradiance measurements at a two seconds sampling time (0.5 Hz sampe rate) for 1016 days, between 2016-08-19 and 2019-11-10, making a total of 21,959,912 data points, measurements where conducted in Bogotá, Colombia at Latitude: 4 ° 35 ' N, Longitude: 74 ° 40 ' W; . Additional calculations included for each point: Air mass, Zenith angle, Extraterrestrial Solar Irradiance and Clearness index. Nights and incomplete days were discarded. Aggregated statistics for each day are included.


Steps to reproduce

Measurements were carried out with a thermopile-type pyranometer (Kipp & Zonen CM3).
