In absorption of insolation, the most significant part is played by
» Explain it

Insolation (from Latin insolare, to expose to the sun) is the total amount of solar radiation energy received on a given surface area during a given time. It is also called solar irradiation and expressed as "hourly irradiation" if recorded during an hour or "daily irradiation" if recorded during a day.

Earth and its atmosphere absorbs about 64% of the insolation. Land and water surfaces of Earth absorbs 51%  of this insolation. Ozone, carbon dioxide and water vapour directly absorb the remaining 13% These gases absorb the insolation at certain waelengths. Ozone absorbs only a small percentage of the insolation. The most important absorption occurs with carbon dioxide and water vapour, which absorb strongly over a broader wavelength band.
