    Radiative Transfer in the Earth’s Atmosphere An important tool to simulate changes in the solar radiation due to atmospheric scattering and absorption processes are radiative transfer models, also referred to as Forward provide the synthetic radiances, as they would be measured by the sensor, for a specified state of the atmosphere. A primer for radiative transfer is given in Sect. , with the description of radiative emission, absorption and scattering. Section illustrates the application to the atmosphere, with a focus on the greenhouse effect. The main sources of uncertainties, namely the role of clouds and aerosols, are also by: 1. Not only enables readers to include radiation as part of their design and analysis but also appreciate the radiative transfer processes in both nature and engineering systems. Offers two distinguishing features--a whole chapter devoted to the classical dispersion theory which lays a foundation for the discussion of radiative properties presented throughout and a detailed .

Radiative transfer techniques take the sophisticated approach of numerically computing the atmospheric path radiance for each pixel in an image. The virtue of this approach is that every image pixel can get a different atmospheric correction, which can account for differences in viewing geometry or even for differences in atmospheric conditions.

It reads much easier than Goody's. Also more updated and providing more pracitical guidance for those who want to write up a small program to test out some theories and those serious ones, like atmospheric radiative transfer by: Major radiative quantities include the surface radiation budget, the profile of heating/cooling radiative rates, radiative forcing at the top of the atmosphere, and actinic fluxes.

The latter plays an important role in atmospheric chemistry by controlling photochemical reaction rates, which are important in ozone production. Methods. At the core of a radiative transfer model lies the radiative transfer equation that is numerically solved using a solver such as a discrete ordinate method or a Monte Carlo radiative transfer equation is a monochromatic equation to calculate radiance in a single layer of the Earth's atmosphere.

In section 2, a conceptual model of 3D radiative transfer is presented that summarizes the effect of 3D transport by three mechanisms: two in the shortwave and one in both the shortwave and longwave. Results of shortwave 3D radiative transfer calculations from the literature are then presented, which are explained in terms of the first two by: Radiative forcing or climate forcing is the difference between insolation absorbed by the Earth and energy radiated back to space.

Changes to Earth's radiative equilibrium, that cause temperatures to rise or fall over decadal periods, are called climate forcings. Positive radiative forcing means Earth receives more incoming energy from sunlight than it radiates to space.

Introduction to the Theory of Atmospheric Radiative Transfer experts, and, as a consequence of long familiarity with the basic theory, a great deal is generally omitted from their papers as being well known or implied, causing still more confusion to the researcher new to the field.
