Total Solar Irradiance

Some articles on solar, solar irradiance:

Solar Variation and Climate - Effect On Global Warming
... Change (IPCC) Third Assessment Report (TAR) concluded that the measured magnitude of recent solar variation is much smaller than the amplification effect due to greenhouse ... Estimates of long-term solar irradiance changes have decreased since the TAR ... empirical results of detectable tropospheric changes have strengthened the evidence for solar forcing of climate change ...
BoPET - Applications - Solar, Marine and Aviation Applications
... Metallized boPET is intended to be used for solar sails as an alternative means of propulsion for spacecraft such as Cosmos 1 Metallized boPET solar curtains reflect sunlight and ... Aluminized, as an inexpensive solar eclipse viewer, although care must be taken, because invisible fissures can form in the metal film, reducing its effectiveness ... boPET films as the back face of the PV modules in solar panels Metallized boPET as a reflector material for solar cooking stoves To bridge control surface gaps on sailplanes, reducing profile drag ...
Equation Of Time
... The equation of time is the difference between apparent solar time and mean solar time ... Apparent (or true) solar time can be obtained for example by measurement of the current position (hour angle) of the Sun, or indicated (with limited accuracy) by a sundial ... Mean solar time, for the same place, would be the time indicated by a steady clock set so that over the year its differences from apparent solar time average to zero (with zero net gain or loss over the year) ...
Amorphous Silicon - Applications - Photovoltaic Thermal Hybrid Solar Collectors
... Photovoltaic thermal hybrid solar collectors(PVT), are systems that convert solar radiation into thermal and electrical energy ... electromagnetic radiation (photons) into electricity, with a solar thermal collector, which captures the remaining energy and removes waste heat from the PV module ... this is an effective method, it causes the thermal component to under-perform compared to a solar thermal collector ...
2006 World Solar Rally In Taiwan
... The 2006 World Solar Rally in Taiwan was a solar vehicle auto race held in September 2006 in Taiwan ...

Famous quotes containing the words total and/or solar:

    I believe in the total depravity of inanimate things ... the elusiveness of soap, the knottiness of strings, the transitory nature of buttons, the inclination of suspenders to twist and of hooks to forsake their lawful eyes, and cleave only unto the hairs of their hapless owner’s head.
    Katharine Walker (1840–1916)

    Lincoln becomes the American solar myth, the chief butt of American credulity and sentimentality.
