Solar Radiation Units from Solar Observation

I want to convert from Wh/m^2 to W/m^2 for daily solar radiation observation, but I do not know the time span of the day over which the solar data was collected. I am using W/m^2 to interpret the data and compare it to literature, if anyone can help with this. Thanks!

The discussion should follow the statement of each argument in a manner resembling the overall organisation of the essay: facts, ideas, and opinions of authorities in the field, as well as own reasoning should be brought in the discussion one by one. In the end, it should be examined whether the argument survived the debate or not, inside a conclusive sentence/paragraph here .

Relating tothe NASA maps consistently under-estimating the average radiance , that generally appears to be true. My company has it's own weather station in California and our weather recordings bear that out, but I've heard it anecdotally from people in the US, India and South America.

It's also strange that this only seems to happen in Antarctica, and not the Arctic. What mechanism causes this huge amount of solar radiance at the pole, only in the Southern Hemisphere? The more I look at this, the more I'm convinced this is an error.
