Radiative Transfer in the Earth System

Radiative Transfer in the Earth System
by

Publisher: University of California, Irvine
Number of pages: 178

Description:
This document describes mathematical and computational considerations pertaining to radiative transfer processes and radiative transfer models of the Earth system. Our approach is to present a detailed derivation of the tools of radiative transfer needed to predict the radiative quantities (irradiance, mean intensity, and heating rates) which drive climate.
