Abstract
The relationship between total solar radiation on a horizontal surface (Q), as measured by a pyranometer, and hours of bright sunshine (n), as measured by a Campbell-Stokes recorder, has been examined and it is shown that there is little practical gain in weighting the hourly sunshine records by the sine of the apparent solar altitude
