The original concept of a steady-state atmospheric infrared transparency and the corresponding concept of a stable well-organized stationaty flux structure are copyrighted to
Ferenc Miskolczi. The 2CTS(clear) = ULW relationship was given in Miskolczi and Mlynczak (2004); the clear-sky flux structure was published in Miskolczi (2007). The connection between longwave cloud radiative effect and the all-sky atmospheric window radiation was first recognized and presented by Ferenc Miskolczi.

The all-sky structure: values of the fluxes as whole-number multiples of LWCRE, the corresponding numerical ratios and internal relationships, including the surface-TOA energy relations and the relationship between the equilibrium cloud area fraction and the equilibrium all-sky transfer function as β0 = f0(all)
were first published in Zagoni (2015). The credit for the new energy budget diagram and poster, and for the albedo 'grid' position at α0 = 1 – sin 45° = 0.293  belongs to Miklós Zágoni.

The information content presented in the diagram and poster belongs partly to the cited data sources, partly to Ferenc Miskolczi
(clear-sky structure) and partly to Miklós Zágoni (all-sky structure).
