Radiative transfer in the cloudy atmosphere

  title={Radiative transfer in the cloudy atmosphere},
  author={Bernhard Mayer},
Radiative transfer in clouds is a challenging task, due to their high spatial and temporal variability which is unrivaled by any other atmospheric species. Clouds are among the main modulators of radiation along its path through the Earth’s atmosphere. The cloud feedback is the largest source of uncertainty in current climate model predictions. Cloud observation from satellites, on a global scale, with appropriate temporal and spatial sampling is therefore one of the top aims of current Earth… CONTINUE READING
