Paper Abstract

The simple semi-empirical expression, valid in the visible spectrum, for the diffuse irradiance calculations is presented. This relation is based on the experimental data collected in cloudless days of 1993 and 1994 over the southern Baltic Sea. In order to illustrate the accuracy of the proposed formula, the aerosol optical thickness is calculated. As a general conclusion it can be stated that the semi-empirical diffuse irradiance model can precisely estimate the spectral diffuse irradiance and the aerosol optical thickness.
