Global And Ultravoilet Radiation Over Kuwait
MetadataShow full item record
The data of six spectral bands of solar radiation over Kuwait were measured locally, during the period of time starting May 1, 1995 until February 5,1998. Near ultraviolet spectral band (315-380) nm, shows very week measurements during the last 3-years, compared with other measured regions. This means that the solar ultraviolet radiation was absorbed in Kuwaiti Atmosphere. The Global radiation is high in Kuwait's atmosphere, when compared with other places, have the same Kuwait's Latitude (29 north). The variation of the ratio of diffuse and global solar radiation (D/G) was also measured during this period. This ratio provides refer within about the level of the pollution in Kuwaiti atmosphere. The pollution was slightly less during years 1996 and 1997. The ground Albedo was measured during this period of time, and shows a negative slope with surface temperature.
