Swift, Jr., L. W.and Knoerr, K. R., 1973. Estimating solar radiation on mountain slopes. Agric. MeteoroL, 12: 329—336. The amount of solar irradiation on a mountain slope is an important parameter for describing the climatology of a sloping site, but measurements of such radiation are not easily obtained. Daily totals of solar irradiation can be estimated by using published tables of potential solar irradiation if the effects of atmospheric transmissivity and cloud cover are included. Daily… CONTINUE READING
