Various aspects of infrared radiative transfer through clouds are investigated. First, three solutions to the IR radiative transfer equation are presented and assessed, each corresponding to a different approximation for the Planck function. It is shown that the differences in results between solutions with linear and exponential dependence of the Planck source function are small for typical vertical resolutions in climate models. Second, a new perturbation-based approach to solving the IR… CONTINUE READING
