c. The day of the most sunlight at this sight is July 1.

d. On August 15 at 3:00 PM, the sun’s altitude is 50 and the azimuth is about 250. The sun strikes this site at this time.

e. To take advantage of seasonal changes, one would want shade during the summer months. By erecting walls or planting trees in the azimuth regions of 0-110 and 250-300+, the summer sunlight is blocked in the morning and evening. This would be possible on this site with much constructive interventions.

f. There is a big tree in the southern sky that provides shade during the winter months around noon, and the early morning sun is also blocked by foliage. During winter, however, most of this shade would be gone due to lost leaves.
