The presence of atmosphere can appreciably warm a planet’s surface above the temperature of an airless environment. Known as a natural Greenhouse Effect (GE), this near-surface Atmospheric Thermal Enhancement (ATE) as named herein is presently entirely attributed to the absorption of up-welling long-wave radiation by greenhouse gases. Often quoted as 33 K for Earth, GE is estimated as a difference between planet’s observed mean surface temperature and an effective radiating temperature… 

New Insights on the Physical Nature of the Atmospheric Greenhouse Effect Deduced from an Empirical Planetary Temperature Model

A recent study has revealed that the Earth’s natural atmospheric greenhouse effect is around 90 K or about 2.7 times stronger than assumed for the past 40 years. A thermal enhancement of such a

Using Earth’s Moon as a Testbed for Quantifying the Effect of the Terrestrial Atmosphere

TLDR
The Moon was considered as a testbed for the Earth in the absence of its atmosphere to address the influence of the angular velocity in determining the Moon’s globally averaged skin (or slab) temperature.

Comprehensive Analytical Study of the Greenhouse Effect of the Atmosphere

Climate change is an important societal issue. Large effort in society is spent on addressing it. For adequate measures, it is important that the phenomenon of climate change is well understood,

Correspondence Dear Editor I am writing to draw your readers’ attention to recently published findings that, in my opinion, will alter the way we think about “greenhouse gasses/global warming.” These

Erratum to: On the average temperature of airless spherical bodies and the magnitude of Earth’s atmospheric thermal effect

TLDR
This research presents a novel probabilistic procedure called “spot-spot analysis” that allows for real-time analysis of the response of the immune system to drugs.

Earth Similarity Index and Habitability Studies of Exoplanets

Study of exoplanets has been of considerable interest for Astronomers, Planetary Scientists and Astrobiologists. Analysis of huge planetary data from space missions such as CoRoT and Kepler is

On the average temperature of airless spherical bodies and the magnitude of Earth's atmospheric thermal effect

The presence of atmosphere can appreciably warm a planet’s surface above the temperature of an airless environment. Known as a natural Greenhouse Effect (GE), this near-surface Atmospheric Thermal

Thermal Equilibrium of the Atmosphere with a Convective Adjustment

Abstract The states of thermal equilibrium (incorporating an adjustment of super-adiabatic stratification) as well as that of pure radiative equilibrium of the atmosphere are computed as the

ON THE RADIATIVE EQUILIBRIUM AND HEAT BALANCE OF THE ATMOSPHERE

In order to incorporate the effect of radiation into the numerical experiment of the general circulation of the atmosphere, a simplified scheme for computing the radiative temperature change is

Atmospheric CO2: Principal Control Knob Governing Earth’s Temperature

TLDR
Ample physical evidence shows that carbon dioxide is the single most important climate-relevant greenhouse gas in Earth’s atmosphere, and that its abundance determines how much water vapor the atmosphere contains, even though the radiative effect of the water vapor is greater than that of carbon dioxide itself.

The radiative forcing due to clouds and water vapor

As the previous chapters have noted, the climate system is forced by a number of factors, e.g., solar impact, the greenhouse effect, etc. For the greenhouse effect, clouds, water vapor, and CO2 are

Earth's Global Energy Budget

An update is provided on the Earth's global annual mean energy budget in the light of new observations and analyses. In 1997, Kiehl and Trenberth provided a review of past estimates and performed a

The role of long-lived greenhouse gases as principal LW control knob that governs the global surface temperature for past and future climate change

The climate system of the Earth is endowed with a moderately strong greenhouse effect that is characterised by non-condensing greenhouse gases (GHGs) that provide the core radiative forcing. Of

The global energy balance from a surface perspective

In the framework of the global energy balance, the radiative energy exchanges between Sun, Earth and space are now accurately quantified from new satellite missions. Much less is known about the
