>>           There is a UNIX based software package called IPW (Image

>>           incoming solar radiation based on a DEM and the time of
>>           year.  I believe the software was developed at Oregon State
>>           University, but I am not sure.  I have used this software
>>           for distributed snowmelt modelling, and it works pretty
>>           well.
