A Look At The Solar Radiation Climate In Athens During The Brightening Period

SSR is the most abundant renewable energy resource on Earth; nevertheless, it undergoes variations caused by changes in atmospheric constituents, cloud cover (percentage of the sky covered by clouds), and variations in the Sun-Earth geometry (distance from the Earth to the Sun). The third kind of variations is not of interest in this...
