Hi there! I am using ArcPro with an Advanced License and Spatial Analyst enabled, and I am having trouble with the Area Solar Radiation tool. I have a DSM ready to use and the two main outputs I need (solar radiation itself and direct duration) are coming out perfectly, but I always make sure to checkmark the option "create outputs for each interval", and it is not creating them. I am aiming to do this for a one day period, at intervals of 1 hour, from 0-24 hours, and I know that I should get 15 outputs from this process but they are nowhere to be found. Does anyone know what I'm doing wrong or have another potential solution to get an interval solar radiation reading from a DSM? Thanks in advance!!

What parameters did you use in

Area Solar Radiation (Spatial Analyst)—ArcGIS Pro | Documentation

there are lots of recommendations there that may affect your outputs


... sort of retired...

I used a latitude of 40, the time configuration is 'within a day' for June
21, 0 - 24 hours, 1 hour intervals, sky resolution 200 (default), and I
added the optional output of 'direct duration raster' (which worked fine) -
it's just the outputs for each interval that are not being created.
