* @brief Approximate the daily sum of top of atmosphere solar radiation.
* The daily sum is considered to be the integrated solar radiation over the current day. This uses approximations for the solar declination:
* N. J. Rosenberg, <i>"Microclimate: The Biological Environment"</i>, Wiley, 1974, p495
* and for the daily sum of top of atmosphere solar radiation:
* M. T. Walter et al., <i>"Process-based snowmelt modeling: does it require more input data than temperature-index modeling?"</i>, Journal of Hydrology, <b>300</b>, 2005, pp65-75.
* @return Top Of Atmosphere Radiation projected on the horizontal (W/m²)
