Dataset Summary

Description

(Abstract):  Monthly Average Diffuse Solar Resource for Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean Islands.

(Purpose):  Provide information on the solar radiation for the data domain. The insolation values represent the average solar energy available at a shaded location. This can be of value for day-lighting or other building applications. The data can be combined with other data (global horizontal, direct normal) to estimate the global radiation on different surfaces.
