# Surface Transmission Factors

This page contains links to some of the data ﬁles described in the paper Mobley, C. D. and E. Boss (2012)

We currently give here only the ﬁles for a clear sky and zero wind speed that were used to create Figs. 9-11 of the cited paper. Rather than upload a larger number of data ﬁles for other wind speeds, sky conditions, etc, for the 2 deg latitude grid used in the AO paper, interested users should contact author Mobley to discuss the format needed for similar data ﬁles for the user’s application. We can then generate data ﬁles that match the user’s exact latitude grid, wavelength range, wind speed, etc. or other speciﬁc needs.

The ﬁle of instantaneous irradiances computed every 30 minutes, every day, on the 2 deg latitude grid for zero wind speed, clear sky, 400-700 nm, chlorophyll = $0.5\phantom{\rule{2.6108pt}{0ex}}mg\phantom{\rule{2.6108pt}{0ex}}{m}^{3}$ can be downloaded here (18 Mbyte zip ﬁle)

The ﬁle of 24 hour daily averaged irradiances computed from the above ﬁle and used to create AO Figs. 9-12 can be downloaded here (1 Mbyte zip ﬁle)

The 4 ﬁles of irradiances as functions of solar zenith angle used to create AO Fig. 2 can be downloaded here (25 Kbyte zipx ﬁle)
