Studies with a flexible new radiation code. I: Choosing a configuration for a large-scale model
A comprehensive new radiation code based on the two-stream equations in both the long-wave and short-wave spectral regions is described. The spectral resolution of the code is variable, enabling itExpand

A GCM Parameterization for the Shortwave Radiative Properties of Water Clouds
Abstract A new parameterization is presented for the shortwave radiative properties of water clouds, which is fast enough to be included in general circulation models (GCMs). It employs the simpleExpand

A climate model study of indirect radiative forcing by anthropogenic sulphate aerosols
ANTHROPOGENIC sulphate aerosols are believed to affect the radiation budget of the Earth in two ways. Through the direct effect they scatter solar radiation back to space, producing a radiativeExpand

General Circulation Model Calculations of the Direct Radiative Forcing by Anthropogenic Sulfate and Fossil-Fuel Soot Aerosol
Abstract A new radiation code within a general circulation model is used to assess the direct solar and thermal radiative forcing by sulfate aerosol of anthropogenic origin and soot aerosol fromExpand

Intercomparison and interpretation of climate feedback processes in 19 atmospheric general circulation models
The need to understand differences among general circulation model projections of CO2-induced climatic change has motivated the present study, which provides an intercomparison and interpretation ofExpand

Observations of the impact of a major Saharan dust storm on the atmospheric radiation balance
[1] Saharan dust storms have often been observed from space, but the full impact on the Earth’s radiation balance has been difficult to assess, due to limited observations from the surface. WeExpand

  • 4 January 1990
VARIOUS mechanisms have been suggested whereby clouds might take part in or initiate climate change, including changes in cloud amounts, liquid-water paths and droplet sizes1–11. Previous studies ofExpand

An observational and theoretical study of the radiative properties of cirrus: Some results from ICE'89
SLJMUARY Observations of the microphysical and radiative properties of two cirrus clouds are reported. The measurements were taken from the (2-130 aircraft of the UK Meteorological Research Flight asExpand

Evidence for Large Decadal Variability in the Tropical Mean Radiative Energy Budget
It is widely assumed that variations in Earth's radiative energy budget at large time and space scales are small. We present new evidence from a compilation of over two decades of accurate satelliteExpand
