WeatherDataPeriod

Contains specific data response attributes for each period of measure, as specified in Options of the CreateWeatherDataRequest. The time resolution of the <WeatherDataPeriod> corresponds to the TimeResolution_Minutes attribute.

The output data fields requested in the CreateWeatherDataRequest. Availability subject to license access.

Possible values: A string of GlobalHorizontalIrradiance_WattsPerMeterSquared.

Currently supported values:

  • StartTime – start time of WeatherDataPeriod.
  • EndTime – end time of WeatherDataPeriod.
  • ObservationTime – observation time of the satellite image used in the irradiance-specific OutputFields.
  • GlobalHorizontalIrradiance_WattsPerMeterSquared – the average total irradiance covering a plane horizontal to the surface of the earth, over the period of measure. Units of W/m2.
  • DirectNormalIrradiance_WattsPerMeterSquared – the average irradiance incident on a surface normal (perpendicular) to the sun, over the period of measure. Units of W/m2.
  • DiffuseHorizontalIrradiance_WattsPerMeterSquared – the average scattered irradiance covering a plane horizontal to the surface of the earth, over the period of measure. Units of W/m2.
  • IrradianceObservationType – data tags that specify the model used in calculations, beyond version number. For more information, see file formats.
  • AmbientTemperature_DegreesC – the average ambient temperature at 2-meters above the surface, over the period of measure. Units are degrees Celsius.
  • AmbientTemperatureObservationType – data tags that specify the model used in calculations, beyond version number. For more information, see file formats.
  • WindSpeed_MetersPerSecond – the average wind speed at 10-meters above the surface, over the period of measure. Units are meters per second.
  • WindSpeedObservationType – data tags that specify the model used in calculations, beyond version number. For more information, see file formats.
  • ClearSkyDNI_WattsPerMeterSquared – the average total irradiance covering a surface normal to the sun if the conditions are free of cloud, over the period of measure. Units of W/m2.
  • ClearSkyGHI_WattsPerMeterSquared – the average total irradiance covering a plane horizontal to the surface of the earth if the conditions are free of cloud, over the period of measure. Units of W/m2.
  • RelativeHumidity_Percent – the measurement of moisture content of the air as a ratio of the partial pressure of water to the vapor pressure at ambient temperature. Units of percentage.
  • SnowDepth_Meters – the measurement of the height of solid precipitation accumulated on the ground. Data is available in the Continental U.S. in the time-series data type. Units of meters. Daily totals are down sampled to the temporal resolution specified by the client.
  • LiquidPrecipitation_KilogramsPerMeterSquared – a measurement of volume of liquid primarily water that condenses out of the atmosphere. Data is available in the Continental U.S. in the time-series data type. Units of kg/m2.
  • SolidPrecipitation_KilogramsPerMeterSquared – a measurement of volume of solid primarily water that condenses out of the atmosphere. Data is available in the Continental U.S. in the time-series data type. Units of kg/m2.
