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.
A table showing how day length varies with season and latitude. ... The
relationship between season, day-length and solar radiation is all pretty straight-
Graphs of solar insolation over a year for varying latitudes. ... the size of the
heating imbalance between equator and the poles would be the same year
Latitude - Insolation reaching the Earth's surface varies with latitude due a ...
insolation received at the top of the atmosphere varies between 390 and 415
The insolation as a function of latitude would be as shown below. ... the cosine of
the zenith angle of the Sun, the angle between the Sun's rays and the vertical.
