Abstract. A database containing 10 min means of downward surface solar irradiance measured on a horizontal plane in several ultraviolet and visible bands from July 2014 to December 2016 at three stations in the area of the city of Ostrava (Czech Republic) is presented. The database contains time series of 10 min average irradiances or photosynthetic photon flux densities measured in the following spectral bands: [280, 315] nm (UVB); [315, 380]  nm (UVA); [400, 700] nm (photosynthetically active radiation, PAR); [510, 700] nm; [600, 700] nm; [610, 680] nm; [690, 780] nm; [400, 1100] nm. A series of meteorological variables including relative air humidity and air temperature at surface is also provided at the same 10 min time step at all three stations, and in addition air pressure, wind speed and wind direction at two stations. These two stations offer additional data: PM10, SO2, NOx, NO, NO2 concentrations. The details of the experimental sites and instruments used for the measurements are given. Special attention is given to the data quality, and the process applied to label suspicious or erroneous measurements is described in detail. About 130 000 records for all three stations are available in the database. This database offers a unique ensemble of variables having a high temporal resolution and it is a reliable source on radiation in relation with environment and vegetation in highly polluted areas of industrial cities in the middle of Europe. The database has been placed on the PANGAEA repository (https://doi.pangaea.de/10.1594/PANGAEA.879722) and contains individual data files of the three stations.

Short summary
Files with irradiances of a few spectral regions of incident solar radiation and some meteorological variables including concentrations of some air pollutants measured for 2.5 years at 3 stations in Ostrava (CZ) were prepared. An attention was given to the data quality and the process of quality check was described. This database offers an ensemble of data with high temporal resolution and creates a source on radiation in relation with environment and vegetation in polluted areas of cities.
