About the Edition

This atlas is a revised and updated version of the European Solar Radiation Atlas published in 1984. The revised contains tables and maps displaying monthly means of global, diffuse and beam solar radiation as well as sunhours for a large number of represenative sites in Europe. Tables show radiation on both horizontal and inclined surfaces. The revisions reflect the political developments in the European Union and within neighbouring countries. The presentation of the tables has been improved and additional information is included. An enlarged text section provides an introduction to the systematics of solar radiation measurement and calculation. The solar data presented in this book is a useful source of information for the estimation of the energy harvest potential for solar systems. The data contained in the tables is provided on two disks in easily readable ASCII format.

It is provided by the World Bank Group as a free service to governments, developers and the general public, and allows users to quickly obtain data and carry out a simple electricity output calculation for any location covered by the solar resource database.

The European Atlas of Natural Radiation is a collection of maps displaying the levels of radioactivity caused by different natural sources in Europe. The Atlas is intended to familiarise the public with the radioactive environment, to give a more balanced view of the annual dose that it may receive from natural radioactivity and to provide.

Compared to the model used for the European Solar Radiation Atlas for years Cited by: Solar irradiance is the power per unit area (watt per square metre, W/m 2), received from the Sun in the form of electromagnetic radiation as reported in the wavelength range of the measuring instrument.

Solar irradiance is often integrated over a given time period in order to report the radiant energy emitted into the surrounding environment (joule per square metre, J/m 2), during that time. The book contains fundamentals of solar radiation, its ecological impacts, applications, especially in agriculture, architecture, thermal and electric energy.

Chapters are written by numerous experienced scientists in the field from various parts of the world. Apart from chapter one which is the introductory chapter of the book, that gives a general topic insight of the book, there are 24 more.

The clear-sky solar radiation model applied in the is based on the work undertaken for development of European Solar Radiation Atlas (Scharmer and GreifPage et al. Rigollier ). The clear sky model estimates the global radiation from the sum of its beam, diffuse and reflected components.

The content is based on the experiences of scientists and engineers from industry, academia, and DOE for European Solar Radiation Atlas Model. Solar radiation could be used to drive heterogeneous electrochemical reactions at the surface of an optically active photocatalyst (e.g.

TiO 2-based or non TiO 2-based), resulting in the production of solar fuels, including hydrogen via photolytic water splitting, glycerol or biomass conversion and hydrocarbons (methane, methanol, etc.) via CO.

Irradiance and irradiation are defined; we explain the origin of the energy emitted by the sun and reaching the ground and its amount as a function of the wavelength – the spectral distribution.

The energy reaching the earth depends on the geometry of the earth relative to the Sun. A majority of skin cancers are caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation.

Keratinocyte skin cancers (basal cell and cutaneous squamous cell carcinomas) are the most common human cancers with over 13 million cases estimated each year worldwide. While rarely fatal, keratinocyte cancers cause substantial.

Equally, more rigorous methods of modeling inter-reflections within curvilinear surfaces are now being evaluated for simplified analytical evaluations. Therefore, this book, Solar Radiation Applications, presents the outcomes of selective and classic works on the optimization of these essential fields in active solar energy : Segun Raphael Bello.
