Earth’s Top-of-Atmosphere Radiation Budget
The top-of-atmosphere (TOA) Earth radiation budget (ERB) is a key property of the climate system that describes the balance between how much solar energy the Earth absorbs and how much terrestrialExpand

Global all‐sky shortwave direct radiative forcing of anthropogenic aerosols from combined satellite observations and GOCART simulations
[1] Estimation of aerosol direct radiative forcing (DRF) from satellite measurements is challenging because current satellite sensors do not have the capability of discriminating betweenExpand
