A model of solar energy input to the sea surface
Languages of publication
On the basis of the papers of Bird and Riordan (1986), Justus and Paris (1985), Kr??el (1985, 1997) and Leckner (1978), a model of solar radiation energy input to the sea surface under real meteorological conditions has been developed. The model enables one to determine the flux or dose of total (direct + scattered) radiation within the whole visible light spectrum and any other spectrum interval in the range of 300-4000 nm. The initial data to the model are: atmospheric pressure and water vapour pressure at the sea surface and cloudiness. The seasonal mean long-term values of ozone and aerosol caused attenuation of light in the southern Baltic area were taken into account. The calculations performed for Gdynia and Hel regions are in a good agreement with the ac-tinometric data recorded in Gdynia. Therefore, the presented model could serve as a part of eco-logical model.
