Solarradiation.m is used to calculate the solar radiation for a digital elevation model integrated over one year. Radiation is calculated depending on latitude, elevation, horizon shading, slope, aspect, time of year and hour of the day (day length/season) and ground reflectance.
Temporal resolution of radiation calculation over sunshine hours can be set freely (1 hour default).
The script follows the approach by Kumar et al (1997). Simple unweighed 4 nearest neighbour gradient calculation is used and relief shading is not accounted for.

a GIS environment. Int.J.Geogr.Info.Sys. 11(5), 475-497
Can I use to calculate the irradiance at the top of the atmosphere
can we distinguish between UVA, UVB and UVC.
can I have a model to compute Direct Normal Irradiance (DNI) please????
It is great tool to my master degree modules. Thanks!
This'.m'is quite good.Can we see an example that makes use of this?
