Fifty-six years of surface solar radiation and sunshine duration over São Paulo, Brazil: 1961–2016

Marcia Akemi Yamasoe et al.

Data sets

Annual and seasonal mean values of surface solar irradiation, sunshine duration, diurnal temperature range, cloud cover fraction, maximum and minimum air temperature, based on observations performed at IAG meteorological station from 1961 to 2016 Marcia Akemi Yamasoe https://www.iag.usp.br/lraa/index.php/data/cientec/weather-station-climatology/

Short summary
Spatio-temporal disparity to assess global dimming and brightening phenomena has been a critical topic. For instance, few studies addressed surface solar irradiation (SSR) long-term trend in South America. In this study, SSR, sunshine duration (SD) and the diurnal temperature range (DTR) are analysed for São Paulo, Brazil. We found a dimming phase, identified by SSR, SD and DTR, extending till 1983. Then, while SSR is still declining, consistent with cloud increasing, SD and DTR are increasing.
