Purdue University Meteorological Tool (PUMET)allows users to download and visualize a variety of global meteorological databases, i.e., the NASA meteorological database and National Solar Radiation Database (NSRDB) from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL). Through PUMET, users can access both the real-time and Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) data comprising irradiance, temperature, atmospheric properties, etc., across the entire world for different time resolutions (e.g., hourly, daily, monthly).
