direct solar radiation

Solar radiation that has not been scattered or absorbed.

In practice, solar radiation that has been scattered through only a few degrees, characteristic of the diffraction peak of the scattering function, is unavoidably included in the operational measurement of direct solar radiation by a pyrheliometer.
Compare diffuse sky radiation, global radiation.
