One of the most fundamental problems to the physical geographer is the study of the energy and water exchanges at the surface. Of major importance to these exchanges is the knowledge of the radiation. In spite of the significance of this parameter, no work has been done in presenting the spatial distribution of solar radiation, neither has there been much done in determining or presenting the spatial distribution of net radiation in East Africa in general and Uganda in particular. The only direct studies available are studies which tend to relate cloudiness and sunshine to incoming insolation for particular locations see for example, Rijks and Hudley, 1964, Rijks, 1968; Woodhead, 1968a, 1968b.
