Examples of solar in a Sentence

  1. Marco Tedesco:

    A snowpack that might look clean to our eyes can be more effective in absorbing solar radiation than a dirty one, overall, what matters, it is the total amount of solar energy that the surface absorbs. This is the real driver of melting.

  2. Ryan Zeigler:

    Understanding how volcanism works on other planets lets us understand how the whole solar system formed. So if we want to know how we went from a giant ball of dust to nine planets orbiting around the sun... this is how we're going to do it; studies like this, on rocks like this.

  3. Kelly Miller:

While that may still be an important process, it neglects the effects of what we now know is a very substantial portion of comets: complex organic material.

  4. Paul Byrne:
