The objective of this work is to explore whether high resolution [microclimatic] solar resource features – hereafter microstructures -are climatically stable enough, so that recent high-resolution satellite-based solar resource data can be used to enhance the geographic resolution of long term data sets. Observations spanning diverse climatic environment show that this approach has a strong potential. A valuable application would be to enhance the resolution of the NASA Solar Energy and…
