GEOB 300 - Sun path diagrams.


Sun Path Diagram


The graphs show the apparent path of the sun for the two solstices (Jun 21 and Dec 22), equinoxes (Mar 20 and Sep 22) and four dates in-between as a function of latitude. The graphs show the location of the sun for different hours during the day (in a 24h clock for local apparent time, i.e. adjusted for the equation of time). See also the applet on modelled extraterrestrial short-wave irradiance as a function of latitude.
