Atmospheric radiation : a primer with illustrative solutions / James A. Coakley Jr., Ping Yang (2014)

Me connaître

« This textbook is a first-look at radiative transfer in planetary atmospheres with a particular focus on the Earth’s atmosphere and climate. It covers the basics of the radiative transfer of sunlight, treating absorption and scattering, and the transfer of the thermal infrared. The examples included show how the solutions of the radiative transfer equation are used to evaluate changes in the Earth?s energy budget due to changes in atmospheric composition, how these changes lead to climate change, and also how remote sensing can be used to probe the thermal structure and composition of planetary atmospheres. The examples motivate students by leading them to a better understanding of and appreciation for the computer-generated numerical results. » More…
