Satellite-based Cloudiness and Solar Energy Potential in Texas and Surrounding Regions
Global horizontal irradiance (i.e., shortwave downward solar radiation received by a horizontal surface on the ground) is an important geophysical variable for climate and energy research. Since solar radiation is attenuated ...
An Evaluation of Satellite Estimates of Solar Surface Irradiance Using Ground Observations in San Antonio, Texas, USA
Estimates of solar irradiance at the earth's surface from satellite observations are useful for planning both the deployment of distributed photovoltaic systems and their integration into electricity grids. In order to use ...
Characterizing Variability of Solar Irradiance in San Antonio, Texas Using Satellite Observations of Cloudiness
Since the main attenuation of solar irradiance reaching the earth's surface is due to clouds, it has been hypothesized that global horizontal irradiance attenuation and its temporal variability at a given location could ...
