The Institute of Meteorology and Climatology of the Leibniz Universität Hannover has set up two newly developed cloud camera systems on the roof platform of the institute in Hannover as well as on the roof platform of the NIWA Institute in New Zealand, which can acquire hemispherical images of the sky in high temporal and spatial resolution. From these data, meteorological parameters such as cloud cover, cloud type and short-term forecasts as well as radiation quantities such as luminance, illuminance and radiance can be determined. In addition, radiation measurements are performed at both sites using highly accurate NDACC certified spectroradiometers. Because the geographic location of the New Zealand Institute, with its latitude of 45S, corresponds to that of Central Europe in the southern hemisphere, the obtained data are very well suited for scientific data comparisons and therefore analyzing hemispheric differences.
