SSE is supported through the Prediction of Worldwide Energy Resource (POWER) project under the NASA Applied Sciences Program within the Earth Science Division of the Science Mission Directorate. When POWER data products are used in a publication, we request the following acknowledgment be included: "These data were obtained from the NASA Langley Research Center Atmospheric Science Data Center Surface meteorological and Solar Energy (SSE) web portal supported by the NASA LaRC POWER Project." Continued and future support to expand the SSE data portal to include parameters derived from more recent satellite observations, as well as to develop prototypes relevant to other energy-related themes (e.g., architectural and agricultural industries) will depend, in part, on our ability to quantify/demonstrate the impact the SSE data is having in your applications. To that end we would certainly appreciate your comments about the importance and usefulness of SSE to your work. We would also appreciate comments regarding the savings of time and money because of SSE. If you have used SSE in a Decision Support System of any type (i.e., renewable energy system design, system maintenance, project planning, policy making, etc.) or in a publication, we would appreciate receiving any comments regarding the impact that the data has had on your work. Suggestions for future improvements are welcome.
