Solar insolation curves
Curves for the variations in the intensity of direct solar radiation, incident at sea level on a surface normal to the sun’s rays, with solar altitudes for different water vapour and dust contents of the atmosphere are given in this paper. These curves facilitate easy computations of the solar insolation for any conditions of atmosphere and situation, on clear days.
Calculations carried out using these curves compare well with the observed values generally.
