This paper describes variations in the insolation on Mercury resulting from fluctuations of the orbital eccentricity (0.11≤e≤0.24) of the planet. Equations for the instantaneous and the daily insolation are briefly discussed and several numerical examples are given illustrating the sensitivity of the solar radiation to changes ine. Special attention is paid to the behavior of the solar radiation distribution curves near sunrise and sunset which at the warm pole of Mercury (longitudes ±90…

Climatic variations on Mars: 1. Astronomical theory of insolation
This paper describes variations in the solar insolation on Mars that result from oscillations of the orbital eccentricity (0.005 ≲ e ≲ 0.141) and the obliquity (14.9° ≲ θ ≲ 35.5°) of the planet.
The effect of orbital element variations on the mean seasonal daily insolation on Mars
In this paper we briefly study changes in the mean seasonal insolations on the planet Mars caused by significant large-scale variations in the following orbital elements: the eccentricity (e), the
