    A simple model of vertical heat transfer and temperature in the Earth's climate system. A simple model of vertical heat transfer and temperature in the Earth's climate system from the lower atmospheric layer. Since a fraction \(\epsilon_2\) of the longwave radiation emitted downward by the upper atmospheric layer is absorbed by the lower.   Changes in the Earth's greenhouse effect can be detected from variations in the spectrum of outgoing longwave radiation 8,9,10, which is a measure of how the Earth Cited by:

    This Climate Data Record (CDR) of monthly mean High Resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder (HIRS) Outgoing Longwave Radiation (OLR) flux at the top of the atmosphere in all sky conditions is on a degree x degree grid with global coverage from January to the present and continuing monthly. For scientists to understand climate change, they must also determine what drives the changes within the Earth's radiation budget. The Clouds and the Earth's Radiant Energy System (CERES) instrument aboard NASA's Aqua and Terra satellites measures the shortwave radiation reflected and longwave radiation emitted into space accurately enough for.

    OLR (Outgoing Longwave Radiation) is a measure of the amount of energy emitted to space by earth's surface, oceans and atmosphere. As such, it is a critical component of the earth's radiation budget. In a different context, OLR values are often used as a proxy for convection in tropical and subtropical regions since cloud top temperatures (colder is higher) are an indicator of cloud height.   Disagreement in Earth’s radiation budget between observations and global climate models has been a major concern in the climate community for several decades. Many attempts have been made to explain the observed excess of solar shortwave absorption, which is commonly referred to as anomalous, or excess, absorption.

An Earth outgoing longwave radiation (OLWR) climate model has been constructed for a monthly average radiation budget study.

Get this from a library. An earth longwave radiation climate model. [Shi-Keng Yang; Langley Research Center.]. Physics of Radiation and Climate takes a look at how the outward flow of longwave or terrestrial radiation is affected by the complexities of the atmosphere’s molecular spectroscopy.

This book examines the planet in its current state and considers the radiation fluxes, including multiple scattering, photochemistry, and the ozone layer, and their impact on our climate by: 5. An Earth outgoing longwave radiation (OLWR) climate model was constructed for radiation budget studies.

The model consists of the upward radiative transfer parameterization of Thompson and Warren, the cloud cover model of Sherr et al., and a monthly average climatology defined by the data from Crutcher and Meserve, and Taljaard et al.

To accurately simulate the present Earth climate requires an atmospheric longwave radiation model whose computed fluxes agree to within ±1% of the only presently available standard, line by line (LBL) calculations. This standard derives from the agreement to within ±1% of various LBL calculations (Luther et Cited by: The surface downward longwave radiation is dominated by the radiation from a shallow layer close to the surface of the earth.

The atmosphere above meters from the surface only accounts for 16–20% of the total surface downward longwave radiation.

Earth emits longwave radiation because Earth is cooler than the sun and has less energy available to give off. Figure A shows the Atmospheric Window of the wavelengths that enter our atmosphere.

Our atmosphere is transparent to radio waves, visible light, and some infrared and UV radiation. The RRTM model simulates the flow of electromagnetic radiation in and out of the Earth. The orange, red, and purple pairs of arrows on the right represent, respectively, the amount of shortwave radiation (incoming and reflected sunlight), longwave radiation (radiation given off by the ground and atmosphere), and total radiation averaged across the entire Earth's surface.

This clear-sky longwave bias is analyzed by running the same radiation transfer model for each model’s temperature and moisture profile, and the model spread in clear-sky downwelling longwave radiation with the same radiative transfer model is found to be much less, suggesting that model differences other than temperature and moisture are.

Heat balance at the surface As discussed in sectionthe incoming solar radiation on a horizontal surface at the top of the atmosphere is about Wm-2, with roughly 30% of this being reflected back into analysis of the Earth's global heat balance (Fig.
