Net Radiation

  • J. Seemann


It is always the absolute energy that is of importance for the radiation conversion of a surface. It alone can be converted into another form of energy, e.g., heat-energy. It is known that a part of the solar energy that is radiated to earth is reflected and is no longer available for energy conversions. Energy is also reflected from the surface of the ground or from plants, and subsequently reradiated (reflected radiation) by the atmosphere to the same surface to a certain measure.
