3 measures about 6 × 6 cm. 4 W/m2 with a 100-ȍ load, for a conversion efficiency of a little less than 4%. This particular cell is certainly not state-of-the-art. It is a surplus item, after all, and is clearly designed more for durability and ease of use than for optimum power production. Probably the 100-ȍ load does not allow this solar cell to produce its maximum power output. Regardless of 40 4. 3 demonstrate that the direct conversion of solar energy to electricity is not a very inefficient process.
Thus, a single measurement from space represents an instantaneous spatial average over distances that may be, for example, large compared to typical cloud dimensions—essentially, a fuzzy “snapshot” in both space and time that renders it impossible to separate cloud and ground contributions to the space-based measurement. How can a “fuzzy” space-based measurement be related to what an observer sees looking up toward the satellite from the ground? ) What are the sky conditions before and after a satellite instrument has moved on along its orbit?
04), it can be significant for clean air with small values of aerosol optical thickness. The remaining contribution to optical thickness comes from aerosols. Sources of aerosols include volcanic activity, wind-blown dust from deserts and agricultural activity, sea spray, and air pollution. 3 What Can You Measure? 10. Ozone optical thickness at visible and near-IR wavelengths. amount of aerosols varies widely around the globe, and there are strong seasonal effects. 1. 11 shows a false-color image representing the monthly mean of global aerosol optical thickness for July 2006, generated from data recorded by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) instrument orbiting Earth on NASA’s EOS/Terra spacecraft [NASA, 2008].
