Fig. 5.33 Monthly classification of Antalya solar radiation data
Kars station is located in the northern mountainous region of Turkey and is more than 2000 m above mean sea level. The scatter of monthly partial solar radiation and sunshine scatter has a distinctive feature. It is obvious from Fig. 5.35 that the scatter of the monthly solar radiation and sunshine duration ellipses is comparatively more random than other stations. Such a pattern indicates that the weather conditions at this station are rather unstable and cannot be predicted by any linear or non-linear model.
