Abstract
In this research work, I study the factors affecting the incident radiation from the sun on the earth, I measured the solar radiation on earth surface by pyranometer device which receives all radiation incident on it. Four experiments have been been performed in different conditions in four days in Suba and then I compare this measurement with solar constant ( solar radiation out atmosphere ) , which equal to (1367 W/m2 ) , this quantity was measured by space ship. It has been found that the difference between the solar constant and the measurement of my experiments is large. This means that large of solar radiation is lost due to scattering and absorbtion of solar radiation by Ozone, Vapor water, Air molecules, distance between sun and earth, fog, and cloud.
