The European Solar Radiation Atlas: a valuable digital tool

Abstract : The new CD-ROM based European Solar Radiation Atlas (ESRA) is now available. It is published by Les Presses de l'Ecole des Mines de Paris on behalf of the European Commission. This atlas, in 2 volumes, is an instrument dedicated to providing knowledge and aiding exploitation of the solar resources across a wide sweep of Europe, from the Urals to the Azores and from Northern Africa to Polar Circle. It is a powerful tool for architects, engineers, meteorologists, agronomists, local authorities, and tourism professionals, as well as for researchers and students. The input data are based on the period 1981-1990.
