Definitions for "Scattered radiation"
Solar radiation scattered by particles in the atmosphere.
Secondary radiation belonging to the same radiation type as the original radiation, produced in the interaction of the original radiation with a material medium. The interaction can be characterized by a reduction in radiation energy and/or by a change in the direction of the radiation.
Radiation that has been reflected from particles, disrupting the original direction of the beam. Click Shining On (Figure 3) to see solar components
