Radiative Transfer in the Earth System
by Charlie Zender
Publisher: University of California, Irvine 2010
Number of pages: 178
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.

In this interdisciplinary review, we are guided by our interest in exploring the nexus between climate and concepts such as energy, entropy, symmetry, response, multiscale interactions, and its potential relevance in terms of numerical modeling.

This monograph describes considerations pertinent to understanding and simulating the distribution and effects of natural aerosols in Earth's atmosphere. The majority of the aerosol-specific sections focus on mineral dust.
