Abstract: Small changes in the radiation budget at the earth’s surface can lead to large climatological responses when persistent over time.With the increasing debate on anthropogenic influences on climatic processes during the 1980s the need for accurate radiometric measurements with higher temporal resolution was identified, and it was determined that the existing measurement networks did not have the resolution or accuracy required to meet this need. In 1988 the WMO therefore proposed the establishment of a new international Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN), which should collect and centrally archive high quality ground-based radiation measurements in 1-minute resolution. BSRN began its work in 1992 with 9 stations, currently (status 2018-01-01), the network comprises 59 stations (with data) and 9 candidates (stations recently accepted into the network with data forthcoming to the archive) distributed over all continents. The BSRN database is the World Radiation Monitoring Center. It is hosted at the Alfred Wegener Institute in Bremerhaven, Germany and now offers more than 10300 months of data from the years 1992 to 2017.
