**Radiative Transfer in the Earth System**

by Charlie Zender

**Publisher**: University of California, Irvine 2010**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.
