|Title:||Reliability of GIS-Based Solar Radiation Models and Their Utilisation in Agro-Meteorological Research||Contributor(s):||Kumar, Lalit (author)||Publication Date:||2011||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/9900||Abstract:||Solar radiation is a critical driver of many processes on the earth's surface. It is an important parameter in ecological process modelling, hydrological modelling and biophysical modelling. However, one of the reasons for solar radiation not that widely being utilised in process models is that it is a difficult parameter to measure for all locations, unlike rainfall that can be measured at sample points and interpolated. For GIS-based solar radiation models and the modelled data to be more widely used in biophysical models, one has to have confidence in the accuracy of the modelled data. This paper compares GIS-modelled solar radiation with ground recorded meteorological data for a number of locations and highlight the strong correlation between the two sets. It shows how modelled data can be converted to actual ground data and be used in biophysical models with increased confidence.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Details:||ISRSE 34: 34th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment - The GEOSS Era: Towards Operational Environmental Monitoring, Sydney, Australia, 10th - 15th April, 2011||Source of Publication:||Proceedings of the 34th International Symposium on Remote Sensing of Environment||Publisher:||ISPRS: International Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing||Place of Publication:||Online||Field of Research (FOR):||050206 Environmental Monitoring||Socio-Economic Objective (SEO):||960501 Ecosystem Assessment and Management at Regional or Larger Scales||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://www.isprs.org/proceedings/2011/ISRSE-34/211104015Final00289.pdf
