What is SKYNET ?
SKYNET is an observation network to understand complex aerosol-cloud-radiation interactions in the atmosphere. The main instruments consist of a sky radiometer and radiation instruments to observe various important atmospheric parameters such as aerosols, clouds, and radiation. The network observation by SKYNET started in 1990s and is currently covering a wide area over East Asia, India, and Europe.
