Unraveling the Enigma: Decoding the Discrepancy in Solar Irradiance and Radiation

Getting Started Solar Terrestrial Physics is a field of study that studies the interactions between the Sun and the Earth, including the transfer of energy and particles from the Sun to our planet. Solar irradiance and solar radiation are two important terms used in this field to describe different aspects of the solar energy that

Which part of solar radiation (VIS, NIR) keeps Earth warm?

Understanding Solar Radiation and its Effect on the Earth’s Temperature Solar radiation plays a critical role in determining Earth’s temperature and sustaining life on our planet. The Sun emits a wide range of electromagnetic radiation, including visible (VIS) and near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths. However, not all parts of solar radiation contribute equally to the Earth’s heating.
