What is specific intensity anyway?

  1. Apr 24, 2005 #1
    Hi all,

    I need a hand regarding this problem, just can't seem to find the start point. (It's a two parter):

    What is the specific intensity of the radiation at the solar surface in the direction of Earth

    What is the specific intensity of solar radiation at the surface of the Earth.

    As you can see, isn't really specific on values so it would seem you have to quote any used values. Would be great if anyone could help.
