Introduction : This calculator demonstrates how data is pre-processed, or modified, prior to being entered into an atmospheric model. The calculator determines the amount of solar insolation (in W-m2) for a clear sky (R0), then adjusts that amount of solar insolation for the amount of cloud cover present.
In this calculator, you have three input values:
The algorithm for the the solar radiation cloud cover adjustment calculator is:
