Evaluation of Simulated Clear-Sky Longwave Radiation Using Ground-Based Observations

  title={Evaluation of Simulated Clear-Sky Longwave Radiation Using Ground-Based Observations},
  author={Richard and P................... and H Allan}
Surface observations from a tropical ocean and a subarctic land-based site are employed to evaluate the clearsky surface downwelling longwave irradiance (SDL) simulated using the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts reanalysis (ERA). Comparison of simulated clear-sky and observed all-sky SDL highlights coincident periods of irradiance variability on various timescales in both datasets. Measurements during cloudy conditions are subsequently removed using a combination of the… CONTINUE READING
