RENE TORREZ, S.. IRRADIANZA SOLAR Y TEMPERATURA DEL AIRE SUPERFICIAL EN UNA ATMÓSFERA ESTÁTICA. Revista Boliviana de Física [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.14, pp. 116-120. ISSN 1562-3823.
Using data obtained from several meteorological stations we constructed a typical shift of the daily maxima of temperature in relation to the maximum daily solar radiation, which ranges between 3 and 5 hours, i.e., while the solar radiation maximum appears (around noon), the maximum of the superficial environmental temperature takes place around four o'clock in the afternoon. Simultaneously, the movement of the air induced by the thermal gradient on the surface leads to a wind with an intensity maximun that coincides with the maximum of the superficial temperature. Thus in static environment conditions solar radiation, temperature and wind speed are closely correlated. In the present article, the relationship between these meteorological parameters appears to be in accordance with the basic principles of thermal and fluids physics.
