Surface energy budget, clear sky

Martin Wild presentation, CERES Science Team Meeting, October 21, 2016




216 + 314 + IMB = 398 + 132 + 0.6 = 2 266  (-1.4)

solar absorbed surface + thermal down surface + imbalance =
thermal up surface + evaporation + sensible heat =

2 outgoing thermal TOA

Blue unit: all-sky, LW
Red unit: clear-sky, LW
Green unit: clear-sky, SW.

Surface energy budget:
8 + 12 = 5 + 15 = 2 x 10

Overwhelming evidence for a 'matrix mechanics' or
'quantum theory of climate'

Where opaque, "glass shell" radiation
Where leaky, "window" radiation.

For the "theoretical" values, see later.
