Abstract: A new scheme for solar irradiance retrieval for the Europe from MSG data is here proposed. The surface irradiance is obtained by interpolation of multidimensional LUT relating surface irradiance to set of input parameters. The LUT is generated using the radiative transfer code libRadtran for a variety of atmospheres and cloud conditions. The validation of the irradiance retrieval scheme is based on set of 25 ground stations with measurements of global solar irradiance.
