Many researches on radiation balance
with Landsat 5 and 7 images have used maximum (Lmax) and minimum (Lmin) radiances in the process of conversion of the gray level into spectral radiance (Bastiaanssen et al.
1] [down arrow] to the downward component of the radiation balance
is greater than that of solar radiation (Fig.
These same authors also reported that in a study in the Amazon, the H flux showed similar relationship with radiation balance
Frost flowers formed and grew overnight in the absence of shortwave radiation, while the net longwave radiation was negative and dominated the net all-wave radiation balance
at the surface.
The radiation balance
of the active surface as a leading component of the heat balance determines the amount of heat emission in the air and soil.
Changes with regard to radiation balance
were based on the variation of solar energy in relation to the exposed surface and land slope (IQBAL, 1983; KAMALI et al.
He asserted that like greenhouse gases, volcanic aerosols perturb the Earth's radiation balance
The sensitivity of global temperature to changes in the Earth's radiation balance
is a key factor in understanding past natural climate changes as well as potential future climate change.
Dimethylsulfide emissions play a role in climate regulation through transformation to aerosols that are thought to influence the Earth's radiation balance
," says Oduro, who conducted the research while completing a Ph.
2] Average daily long/wave -50 -53 -35 -48 -40 radiation balance
, W/ [m.
The general lesson drawn from these records is that, as predicted by simple radiation balance
models, adding greenhouse gases to the atmosphere leads to warming of the planet.
Thus, in order to model climate change, the radiation balance
of the Earth must be determined as a function of all frequencies from radio through the infrared.
