The function calculates the azimuth angle, the angle (degrees) from which the sunlight is coming measured from true north or south measured in the horizontal plane. The azimuth angle is measured with respect to due south, increasing in the counter clockwise direction so 90 degrees is east (Campbell and Norman 1998) .
azimuth_angle(doy, lat, lon, hour, offset = NA)
numeric day of year (1-366). This can be obtained from standard date via
numeric latitude (decimal degrees).
numeric longitude (decimal degrees).
numeric hour of the day.
numeric number of hours to add to UTC (Coordinated Universal Time) to get local time (to improve accuracy but not always necessary). Optional. Defaults to NA.
numeric azimuth angle (degrees).
