Solar irradiance is the power per unit area received from the Sun in the form of
electromagnetic ... Insolation is the power received on Earth per unit area on a
horizontal surface. ... As the angle...
If the Sun is 45° above the horizon, the incoming insolation strikes the Earth's ...
Between the September to March equinox days are shorter than nights in the ... (
winter to summer) variation in day length increases with increasing latitude.
At low latitudes less heat is lost by reflection/absorption because the atmosphere
path is shorter and therefore a ray heats up less ground.

Important Relationships Include: ... of incident radiation that is reflected (value
between 0 and 1, e.g. snow ~= 0.9 and grass ~= 0.3); Outgoing = Insolation*
Solar Declination angle ( ) the angle between a plane perpendicular to incoming
