Abstract : Approximately 10 years of hourly and daily insolation data for the U. S. Army Yuma Test Station, Arizona, are summarized in tabular and graphical form. Frequency distributions, totals and means of hourly and daily insolation, are given for each month of the year. The data were collected by an Eppley pyrheliometer (horizontal mount) and an electronic strip chart recorder. Integration and reduction of the data to numerical form were done visually. Information is presented concerning the efficiency of the Eppley pyrheliometer, and of the adequacy of visual data integration and reduction.
