  • RPCs are held once every 5 years, in principle in the next year of IPC.
  • Last RPC was held from Jan. to Jan. 2007 at Tsukuba, Japan with 4 NRC in RAII and WRC.
  • The next RPC is planned in 2012.

  • The world infrared irradiance standard developed at PMOD based on the World Infrared Standard Group (WISG) in 2004.
  • RRCs are recommended to have a regional standard group of pyrgeometers and send them every three years to the WRC-IRS for calibration.

  • RRC-Tokyo has been serving as RRC in RA II since 1965.
  • In January 2007, the RRC of Tokyo organized a regional intercomparison at Mt Tsukuba, attended by experts from China including Hong Kong, the Republic of Korea, Japan and the WRC. The report of the regional intercomparison has been published from WMO as WMO/TD-No. 1494.
  • Next RPC is planned in 2012 at Mt. Tsukuba. The details of the RRC will be announced to participants in due course.
  • RRC-Tokyo has established a pyrgeometer calibration procedure for Eppley PIR and Kipp&Zonen CG4/CGR4 pyrgeometers.
  • RRC-Tokyo would like to cooperate in calibration of radiation instruments for the improvements of surface radiation measurements.
