In this study, long and short-wave radiations were observed in urban and suburban areas during the summer season, and frequency analysis was performed for each radiation intensity by a new analysis method. The following results were obtained. (1) Long-wave radiation values were found to be larger in the afternoon than in the morning, in both urban and suburban areas, unlike short-wave radiation values. (2) Short-wave radiation showed a right-skewed frequency distribution. In the high energy area greater than $900W/m^2$, the frequency was significantly higher in the suburbs than in the urban areas. (3) Long-wave radiation was in the range of $290{\sim}479W/m^2$, its frequency distribution resembled a normal distribution, and the frequency of 410, $420W/m^2$ was the highest.
