Thus, the incoming solar radiation varies with the time of the day and cloud cover conditions.
The North Atlantic Oscillation, a large-scale natural weather cycle, went into a phase in which summer atmospheric conditions favored more incoming solar radiation and warmer, moist air from the south.
Incoming solar radiation is affected by scattering phenomena in the atmosphere that lead to an increase on the SWUPT.
They produce electricity when incoming solar radiation knocks electrons from the silicon atoms out of their orbits around their nuclei.
Moreover, a sensor was used for the measurement of incoming solar radiation (Rg - model CM3, Kipp & Zonen) and another (NR-lite model, Kipp & Zonen) for net radiation (Rn).
Measurements of incoming solar radiation show that it has not increased in the past fifty years--in fact, the record even shows a small decrease.

A parabolic trough concentrates the incoming solar radiation into a line running along the length of the trough.
The second class of geoengineering methods relies on solar radiation management, which aims to offset warming by reducing the incidence and absorption of incoming solar radiation.
Vegetation utilizes incoming solar radiation for evaporating moisture from the plants and the growing media around it, as well as for transpiration during the process of photosynthesis.
