Employing 30 years of solar radiation dataset from Camagüey Actinometric Station, the climatology of the Surface Albedo was determined for two solar disk state (Sun and Squared Sun). The obtained mean value for all period is 0.21 with a median of 0.209 and standard deviation of 0.0422. The WMO Guide to Climatological Practices was employed to determine this climatology. The dataset has been subjected to a meticulous quality control process, taking into accounts the criteria of Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN). The annual and multiannual means was established, as well as, the monthly and hourly mean values for the entire sample. The frequency distribution was determined for different combinations of active surface and their relation with the albedo values. © Sociedad Española de Óptica.

The Broadband Aerosol Optical Depth (BAOD) was calculated for Camagüey Actinometrical Station (EAC) using the methodology described by Gueymard in 1998. The main source of data used was the Solar Radiation Database of EAC for the 1981-2013 period. The BAOD calculation was performed for observations with total cloud coverage equal or less than one tenth of sky covered by clouds (Clear Sky, HCD) and for actinometrical observations with no clouds in the line of sight of the sun. To determine the BAOD Baseline the periods of El Chichón and Mt. Pinatubo volcanic eruptions were eliminated. The average value of BAOD for the entire period under aerosol background conditions is 0.115 (± 0.075) with a decreasing trend of-.20×10-6 day-1,. BAOD values were compared with time coincident spectral AOD values obtained from a nearby sunphotometer. The highest correlation coefficient values were obtained for the wavelengths of 500 and 675 nm, with an R2 =0.45 for both cases. © Sociedad Española de Óptica.
