'The network of five water vapour MPD instruments was deployed to the atmospheric radiation
measurement Southern Great Plains atmospheric observatory in mid-April,' team member Catharine Bunn said.
Shallow convective clouds are common, occurring over many areas of the world, and are an important component in the atmospheric radiation
Ann Webb, professor of atmospheric radiation
at the University of Manchester said while the further north you go UVB in sunlight decreases, there are many other factors that influence each individual's circulating 25OHD, which determines vitamin D status, such as the amount of time a person spends in the sun, the colour of their skin and the amount of skin exposed.
That's because the locations near the poles do not get as much sunlight as the ones near the equator, (https://www.arm.gov/education/studyhall/ask/past_question.php?id=694) Atmospheric Radiation
Measurement (ARM) Program said.
It is to be owned by the US Department of Energy (DOE) and managed by the Atmospheric Radiation
Measurement (ARM) Climate Research Facility, a DOE national scientific user facility.
The instrument for recording downwelling atmospheric radiation
[L.sub.1][down arrow] was shaded from direct solar rays by a tracking shading disc.
Furthermore, success of several radiant systems in residential buildings has attracted researchers for generating an accurate database of atmospheric radiation
(Clark and Allen 1978).
The total long-wave radiation reaching the surface, [I.sub.l], depends on the downward atmospheric radiation
, [I.sub.l,atm], affected by the atmospheric field of view, [g.sub.atm].
Total liquid water path measured by microwave radiometer has also been used to obtain the [R.sub.eff] and this retrieval was applied to ARM (atmospheric radiation
measurement) data to derive [[tau].sub.c] .
Frierson and his co-authors first used detailed measurements from NASA's Clouds and Earth's Radiant Energy System, or CERES, satellites to show that sunlight actually provides more heat to the Southern Hemisphere - and so, by atmospheric radiation
alone, the Southern Hemisphere should be the soggier one.
