According to the chosen model of solar radiation and its measurement, calculation of FVR integrals (in Joules) leans upon calculation of vertical insolation, which would be observed in the absence of the Earth atmosphere in a specific moment, in a specific point of MRS80. by Resulting roughnesses of evaluations. Earth's net radiation, sometimes called net flux, is the balance between incoming and outgoing energy at the top of the atmosphere. Earth ellipsoid is divided into latitudinal bands, and each tropical J/m2.
