Distribution of sunshine and solar radiation over the Indian Peninsula
A study of the solar radiation received on the earth's surface and its global distribution is of great importance for a better understanding of the mechanisms of circulation processes in the atmosphere and of the energy available in ordinary sunshine for utilization as sources of power in the arid and semi-arid regions of the world. Maps depicting the areal distribution of total radiation received at the surface with nor-mally cloudy skies have been prepared by Fritz and MacDonald (1949) for the United States, Mateer (1955) for Canada and Drum-mond (1957) for South Africa, on the basis of actual observations at a large number of stations in these countries.
