    Prelude to solar energy: Pouillet, Herschel, Forbes and the solar constant.Peggy Aldrich Kidwell - 1981 - Annals of Science 38 (4):457-476.

At about the same time, the British natural philosophers John Herschel and J. D. Forbes made similar measurements in order to better understand the sun's influence on climate. This paper tells how and why Pouillet, Herschel and Forbes made the first estimates (...)
