        abstract:  A national network of surface radiation budget stations representing differing climates of the United States.
        purpose:  1) Validation of satellite-based retrievals of surface radiation parameters; 2) Validation of radiative transfer codes and surface physics in weather, hydrology, and climate models; 3) Assessment of the role of clouds and aerosols in atmospheric transmission; 4) Monitoring trends in the in the surface radiation budget; 5) For use in instruction and basic research. The mission of the SURFRAD surface radiation budget network is to provide the scientific and educational communities with continuous, accurate, and high-quality surface radiation budget measurements. SURFRAD supports research by providing both basic measurements and ancillary quantities that affect the transmission of radiation.

        supplementalInformation:  The three platforms that make up a SURFRAD station are aligned north to south. The upward-viewing radiometers rest on a long rectangular platform (~1 ft. by 9 ft.) which is made of an off-white, UV-protected fiberglass Kordec grating. It is elevated by 4 to 5 ft. from ground level by two steel posts. The data logging, power distribution, and communication equipment are fastened to these posts. A separate stand supports an automatic sun tracker. About 50 ft. due north of the main platform is a 10-m tower with downward viewing radiometers and meteorological instruments mounted near the top. The crossarm supporting the radiometers is aligned north-south. This layout ensures that the tower and the instruments mounted on it will never shade the upward-viewing radiometers on the platform. Electrical power for the instruments and support equipment is conditioned by a 1.15 KVA uninterruptable power supply unit that will sustain the system for a short period (~2 hours) if the line power fails.
