Insolation vs temperature

Insolation vs temperature:
  • Insolation is a form of short-wavelength whereas temperature is a form of longer wavelength.
  • Insolation increase with altitude from the earth's surface whereas temperature decrease with altitude from the earth's surface.
  • During the night, insolation is zero whereas temperature is present during the night.

Try to solve the following questions:
  • Differentiate between insolation and temperature and explain anomalous temperature. ( UPSC 2016, 150 words, 10 marks)
