Abstract

SYNOPSIS

Results of observations extending over nine years are summarized, and data of related phenomena of duration of bright sunshine and of cloudiness are given. A midsummer depression in the annual march of midday normal intensity is ascribed to a maximum of haze at that time, due in turn to the increased evaporation of water and stronger convection. Spring and autumn depressions in the annual march of sun and sky radiation upon a horizontal surface are explained are arising from the double maximum in the annual march of frequency of “Colorado lows.” The suggestion is offered that this double maximum is produced by the most efficient cooperation at intermediate seasons of the stationary barometric depression in Northern Mexico and the eastward drift of the atmosphere, the annual oscillations of which are in opposite phases.

Abstract

SYNOPSIS

Theory of the Callendar automatic pyrheliometer. The indications of the Callendar pyrheliometer differ from the calculated intensities of radiation upon a horizontal surface on account of (1) greater sensitiveness for low intensity than for high; (3) selective absorption of short-wave radiation by platinum compensating grids; (3) internal reflection of light from glass cover to grids; (4) selective absorption by cover glass of ultra-violet and infra-red radiation from sun, and total absorption of radiation from grids; (5) grid surfaces not geometrical planes; (6) lag of registration behind radiation.
