Unformatted text preview: tion intensity and look for connections between daily variations in solar radiation and temperature. II. Instructions. For each of the questions posed in this lab, respond in writing in the box provided or as otherwise directed. (Although you may consult with others about each question, your written answers need to be in your own words.) Question Set #1. For this set of questions, you will compare observations of insolation with observations of temperature recorded at the same place and date. You’ll also compare observations of insolation at Hanford, CA recorded in late May and mid December. First, refer to the two meteograms for Hanford, CA, each covering part of one day and all of the next. One begins on December 15 and runs through December 16, 1998 (local time). The other begins on May 22 and runs through May 23, 1999. (Note, though, that the dates and times labeled on the meteograms are in UTC, which is standard time in Greenwich, England.) Question (1)(a) On each meteogram, mark and label the following key local standard times: midnight, noon, sunrise and sunset. (Turn in your annotated meteograms with your written responses to this lab.) [Note: On December 16, 1998 at Hanford, the sun rose at 7:03 am and set at 4:45 pm local standard time (LST). On May 22, 1999, the sun rose at 4:44 am and set at 7:04 pm LST. (On the Web, a source of this information is Naval Oceanography Portal's Sun or Moon Rise/Set Table for One Year3. 3http://www.usno.navy.mil/USNO/astronomical- applications/data- services/rs- one- year- us 3 Question (1)(b). Using the meteograms, describe the pattern of temperature over the course of a 24- hour day (local standard time) on December 16, 1998 and on May 22, 1999 (local time). (In particular, to the extent that you can tell, when is the temperature at a minimum, when does it reach a maximum, how does it behave between maximum and minimum points, and what are the maximum and minimum temperatures?) Refer to the two graphs that each show a single plot of insolation recorded on a horizontal surface at the earth's surface at Hanford,...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
