Incoming Solar Radiation Impacts By Various Weather Cycles

The above image looks at the month of March for the three cycles known as Normal Phase, El-Nino, and La-Nina. The data was recorded for the city of Austin Texas. Remember this is just data for one month during these cycles.

Normal: During this cycle incoming solar activity was upwards to 60% efficient for the month, producing enough solar energy that only 40% of the month would have not had strong incoming radiation.

EL-Nino: This phase provided the area with an extended number of upwards to 66% efficient for the month, while only 34% of the month would have not produced strong incoming radiation. This supports EL-Nino being a warm cycle also by the results of more solar energy being released towards the earth.

LA-Nina: Known for being colder than normal during the winter months, La-Nina only had an efficiency rate of 56%, while 44% of the month would have been not as strong of incoming radiation. Which supports the colder aspect during the winter months.
