Measurements of radiation and soil energy balance components were made for a complete solar season on a south and north facing slope on the edge of the Chiltern Hills, England. The contrasts between the two slopes are illustrated on both the diurnal and seasonal time-scale. A consistent relationship exists between daily solar and net radiation totals for the slopes throughout the year but soil heat flux cannot be modelled easily.
