Course Objectives Understanding the radiative proceses in the atmosphere being one of the most important subjects of the atmospheric physics and the thermal radiation, energy balance, climate change and the physical events in the terrestrial and atmospheric system, forming the basis in the solar energy practices
Course Description Characteristics of solar radiation, Thermal radiation, Astronomical and geographical factors affected solar radiation, Extraterrestirial solar radiation and its spectral distribution. Hourly and daily solar radiation on horizontal and inclined surfaces in the extraterrestrial atmosphere, Absorption, scattering, reflection and cloud effect in the atmosphere, Solar radiation models, Long wave radiation in the earth-atmosphere systems and greenhouse effect.
Course Outcomes 1. To calculate astronomical parameters the position of sun relative to the earth,
2. To be able to know relationship between thermal radiation laws, spectral emission power and temperature,
3. To calculate extraterrestrial irradiation on the horizontal and inclined sufaces,
4. To be able to know scattering processes in the atmosphere,
5. To calculate absorption processing by ozone, water vapour and aerosols,
6. To be able to determine radiative effect of clouds and cloud transmissvity,
7. To able to comparison and to apply solar radiation modeling,
8. To be able to determine relationship between greenhouse effect and surface temperature.
