The absorption of solar radiation at the earth surface mainly depends on the angle of the incidence of the solar rays and the nature of the surface on which rays fall (Fig-5). A snow surface absorbs 20%, water surface %, grassy field %, dry sand 75%, dense forest 95%, ploughed field % of the solar radiation.

      Nature of Radiation. Radiation is a form of energy. There are two basic types of radiation. One kind is particulate radiation, which involves tiny fast-moving particles that have both energy and mass. Particulate radiation is primarily produced by disintegration of an . The distribution of energy in the solar radiation spectrum can be determined either by direct measurements or by extrapolation beyond the atmosphere of spectrometric measurements made at ground level. Very reliable measurements have been made by I - Solar Radiation Energy (Fundamentals) - Size: KB.

The shortwave radiation are referred to as short-wave incoming radiation. The outgoing radiation from the soil is called the long-wave terrestrial radiation from the soil is called the long-wave terrestrial radiation.

Solar radiation and crop plants. Crop production is exploitation of solar radiation. Records of total solar radiation measured on a horizontal surface (Q) on a monthly basis and of more than three years' duration are available for 88 stations. The stations are mainly concentrated in North America and Europe, and it is not possible to determine the global distribution of radiation directly from these records.

Solar radiation and mean cloud amount (C) were therefore related by Cited by: It is common to consider separately the ‘direct’ (or ‘beam’) radiation from the solar disk and the ‘diffuse’ radiation from elsewhere in the sky, with their sum known as ‘global’ radiation.

An Introduction to Solar Radiation is an introductory text on solar radiation, with emphasis on the methods of calculation for determining the amount of solar radiation incident on a surface on the earth. Topics covered include the astronomical relationship between the sun and the earth; thermal radiation; the solar constant and its spectral distribution; and extraterrestrial solar Edition: 1.

This entry describes databases and appropriate methods to characterize spatial and temporal variability in solar radiation. The regional distribution of solar energy depends on the meteorological situation characterized by clouds, aerosols, and water vapor content, but also on topography and ground albedo.

Solar radiation reaching to the top of the atmosphere is calculated based on the Sun–Earth distance, the eccentricity (orbital shape of the Earth), the procession (the rotation of the tilted axis of the Earth), and the obliquity (the angle between the Earth's self-rotation axis and the orbital axis).

Solar activities such as the year solar cycle are considered in most models. Solar radiation is usually described in terms of the solar constant and solar spectral irradiance. The solar constant is the amount of total radiant energy received from the sun per unit time, per unit area exposed normal to the sun's rays at the mean sun-earth distance in the absence of the.

This is of interest since absorption of solar energy in this spectral region has a Cited by: Solar irradiance is the power per unit area (watt per square metre, W/m 2), received from the Sun in the form of electromagnetic radiation as reported in the wavelength range of the measuring instrument.

Solar irradiance is often integrated over a given time period in order to report the radiant energy emitted into the surrounding environment (joule per square metre, J/m 2), during that time.Above the atmosphere of our ordinary experience, the stratosphere is a tenuous layer of gas, blocked from rapid exchange with the troposphere, some twenty kilometers above the surface of the earth, seldom reached by humans, and yet a fragile shell which shields life on earth from a band of solar radiation of demonstrable injurious potential.
