As a result of clouds, fog, haze, dust, or other atmospheric impediments dispersing, indirect sunlight is received. the opposite of direct sunlight. During a specific time, solar radiation strikes a given surface area. The sun’s energy is absorbed indirectly after being reflected and dispersed by various atmospheric barriers. used to measure something in the same units as direct insolation. Diffuse insolation is the sunlight that is indirectly received on Earth as a result of being reflected or scattered in the atmosphere
What is Direct Insolation?
Direct insolation, which excludes diffuse insolation, is the solar insolation measured at a specific place on Earth with a surface element perpendicular to the Sun’s beams (the solar radiation that is scattered or reflected by atmospheric components in the sky).
