Solar Radiation to Nonobstructed Inclined Surfaces
Researchers and students in physical climatology are interested in radiative, sensible heat, and latent heat exchanges between the atmosphere and the Earth and how to use models to compute these energy exchanges in natural and agricultural systems. The models can be used, for example, to assess different responses of plants to diurnal or seasonal radiation changes. In this chapter we present a typical application of one such model.
