Description

Hi,

in investigating #2014 I noticed there's a bug in the calculation for diffuse sunlight when the sun is at low angles to the horizon. the overall trend seems ok, but there's a sawtooth pattern which follows the curvature of the lines of latitude.

The attached screenshots are for Ross Island in Antarctica, epsg:3286 bounds:

north:      1437000
south:      1341000
west:       17000
east:       119000
res:        100

?

made with:

DAY=060
r.sun -s elevin=etopo1.ross_island step=0.05 \
       beam_rad=erebus.direct.$DAY diff=erebus.diffuse.$DAY day=$DAY

thanks, Hamish
