The researchers reported that the ratio of scattered radiation to global radiation increases with the increase in air pollution levels, meaning that less sunlight is actually reaching the Earth's surface.

Summary: This report analyzes the current and future scenario of the global Radiation Therapy Market.
For daily global radiation up to 23 million joules/m2, 24 (80 per cent) consecutive days are available in this area.
The scientists found that external variables, such as weather and global radiation, influenced flavonoid content as well, which means they may also have played a role, but had not been accounted for in previous studies.
The measurable parameters of the compact weather sensor are air temperature, relative humidity, air pressure, wind speed and wind direction, precipitation type, precipitation intensity and rainfall, UV index, the position of the sun, brightness and twilight and global radiation.
According to the data obtained from the nearest urban weather station operated by the Hungarian Meteorological Service (HMS), the air temperature ranged from 17.1[degrees]C to 26.9[degrees]C during the measurement period, and the bell-shaped global radiation curve peaked at 848 [Wm.sup.-2].
[11] proposed an all-sky luminous efficacy model with zenith angle ([[theta].sub.z]) and measured global radiation from Kyoto for 1993~1994.
These data sets were then compared against a freely available database of monthly average global radiation measurements, the World Radiation Data Centre (WRDC).
