SAURAN Station Details: KZH University of KwaZulu-Natal, Howard College Campus, Durban, South Africa

The SAURAN KZH station is located on the Howard College campus of the University of KwaZulu-Natal, in Durban, South Africa. The instruments are positioned on the roof
of the Desmond Clarence science building with very good solar exposure. The eastern, northern and southern horizons are largely unobscured while the low western
horizon is partially obscured by a stairwell parapet and telecommunications antenna. The station was first commissioned in 2009 with Eppley radiometers. In April 2012 it
underwent a refurbishment with the addition of new Kipp and Zonen instruments and an automated SOLYS tracker.
