They found that an increased amount in particulate matter prevents the direct incidence of solar radiation to the surface of the Earth and improves the ability of solar radiation in the polluted atmosphere to scatter away.
The solar radiation angle influences the generation of the reactive gas such as OH radical, and accordingly the concentrations of reaction products.
Solar Resource Assessment (SRA) is the analysis and study of the solar radiation potential at a particular site or in a specific region.
The interception of solar radiation by forest species above 39% (Bosi et al., 2014) can interfere with growth and development of plants grown in the understory.
Interrelationship between Solar Radiation and Architecture
The solar radiation that is captured by the absorbing plate per unit area S (W/[m.sup.2]) is equivalent to the difference between the incident solar radiation and the optical loss and can be mathematically determined as in [2].
The impact of solar radiation incident on the east facade in Malaysia is critical from 09: 00 - 12: 00 hours and 13: 00 - 17: 00 hours for the west oriented facades.
The DBTs, solar radiation, relative humidity and wind speed of air are measured where the measurements were performed by using the mentioned instruments with their respective sensitivities.
The temperature has shown to have importance on bacterial decay in the absence of solar radiation. Under solar radiation, the temperature effect becomes less relevant (11-13).
Improved forecasts of solar radiation along with reliable estimates of uncertainty on those forecasts are critical to being able to rely on solar energy.
Pavement temperature periodically changes with the influence of solar radiation, air temperature, and wind.
In the Dead Sea, solar radiation rapidly decreases with depth: at a depth of 2 m, solar radiation is only 10% of its surface value [6].
The altitude of Tibet Plateau is basically above 3000 meters, leading to special climatic characteristics including lower air pressure, stronger solar radiation, higher atmospheric transparency, larger diurnal temperature range, and smaller annual temperature range.
Photovoltaic modules are most commonly used to produce electrical energy from solar radiation. Due to high price per Watt and low efficiency (up to 20%) of PV modules, lot of efforts are made not only in development of modules but also in research of sophisticated control systems, ensuring minimal energy losses such as maximum power point tracking (MPPT) controllers (Kohata et al.
