Incoming Solar Radiation

This Incoming Solar Radiation lesson plan also includes:

Demonstrate how the spherical shape of the Earth contributes to unequal heating of its surface and results in varying climates at different latitudes. This would be an illuminating addition to your meteorology lessons, especially when teaching what factors determine climate. Viewers will see that direct light rays heat a smaller area, while those that strike curved areas spread out further and do not heat as intensely.
