The Broadband Radiometer Station (BRS) is located at the ARM Southern Great Plains site Central Facility, near the Solar and Infrared Radiation Station (SIRS) C1 station. The BRS station collection of radiometers provides continuous measurements of broadband shortwave (solar) and longwave (infrared) irradiances for downwelling components. These 1-minute data are collected to help determine the radiative energy exchange. The BRS station is similar in design to the ARM Sky Radiometers on Stand for Downwelling Radiation (SKYRAD) stations and is operated by ARM in association with the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN, http://bsrn.awi.de ).
