Theory, observation, and modeling}, author = {Liou, K N}, abstractNote = {Following an introductory chapter on the global energy balance, there are separate chapters on the theory and parameterization of thermal and of solar radiation. Clouds as such hardly feature in these two chapters, which are principally. The field of atmospheric radiation and remote sensing has seen significant advances in recent years. This monograph addresses those advances and fills the need for an up-to-date, cohesive integration of radiative transfer and cloud physics, allowing for the better forcast of . With significant advances in the field of atmospheric radiation and remote sensing in recent years, the need for an up-to-date treatment of radiation and cloud physics has become evident. This monograph addresses these advances, focusing on the physical principles and approximations required to develop specific subjects. In addition to its scientific value, the information presented here is. : Radiation and Cloud Processes in the Atmosphere: Theory, Observation and Modeling (Oxford Monographs on Geology and Geophysics) () by Kuo-Nan Liou and a great selection of similar New, Used and Collectible Books available now at great prices.4/5(1).

Global dynamic processes of long duration are regulated by the actual influxes of heat, one of the main ones being the radiative influx. Radiation must be taken into account in long-term, weather forecasting and when considering the global circulation of the atmosphere, the theory of climate, etc. Kupte si knihu Radiation and Cloud Processes in the Atmosphere: Liou, K.

Errors in the surface radiative fluxes are partially linked to differences in total cloud fraction in the satellite estimates and reanalyses, which show significant negative biases ranging from −8% (CFSR) to −% (NCEP2). There is not one reanalysis that outperforms the rest in the NE Pacific. Atmosphere, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal. Dear Colleagues, Aerosols, which are produced by anthropogenic and natural emissions through complex physicochemical processes, significantly affect meteorology and Earth’s climate by interacting with clouds, radiation.

(The fraction of reflected shortwave radiation is called the cloud albedo.) Of the solar radiation reaching Earth’s surface, some is reflected back into the atmosphere. Values of the surface albedo range as high as for fresh snow to for dark, organic soils. On land, this reflection occurs entirely at .
