The time series of daily total solar irradiance (TSI) presented here for March 1, 2000 onwards is based primarily on Version-15 data from the Solar Radiation and Climate Experiment (SORCE). The time series is provided here. Steps outlined below are used to put together the above time series, extended beyond the period covered by SORCE data. The time series is updated every 2 months.
