A high-resolution downward surface solar radiation (DSSR) dataset has been produced using geostationary meteorological satellite measurements. Its validation with in situ observations shows that the daily satellite DSSRs are highly accurate. Comparing the satellite DSSRs with reanalysis DSSR datasets, the former has higher probability density in a low value range, and lower density in a high value range. Overestimations of the reanalysis DSSR are significant in the low range. Correlations between the reanalysis DSSRs and the satellite DSSR are relatively low in the tropics. It is suggested that the satellite DSSRs have good potential to capture cloud behavior in the tropics.
