Comment on ‘On the Choice of Averaged Solar Zenith Angle’ AbstractThe daytime mean solar zenith angle (SZA), and the solar insolation-weighted mean SZA are discussed from a global scale and from a latitude dependent local scale perspective. It is found that the choosing of daytime mean SZA or insolation-weighted mean SZA depends on weather the averaging process is zero moment or single moment weighted. It is a misleading to state that the solar insolation-weighted mean SZA is more accurate than the daytime mean SZA when averaging a radiation variable, as claimed by Cronin (2014). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences American Meteorological Society

Abstract

AbstractThe daytime mean solar zenith angle (SZA), and the solar insolation-weighted mean SZA are discussed from a global scale and from a latitude dependent local scale perspective. It is found that the choosing of daytime mean SZA or insolation-weighted mean SZA depends on weather the averaging process is zero moment or single moment weighted. It is a misleading to state that the solar insolation-weighted mean SZA is more accurate than the daytime mean SZA when averaging a radiation variable, as claimed by Cronin (2014).
