Global radiation budget study

PI: Dohyeong Kim
Institution: Scripps Institution of Oceanography, UCSD
There were gaps between models and ground- and satellite-based measurement, especially in atmospheric absorption. The increasing and quality assured measurements at the surface and TOA can contribute significant improvement of model, and thus to reduce the model uncertainties and to understand the climate change. These radiation data can be regarded as most updated version of global radiation model. We will use these very useful data to study global radiation budget at the surface and TOA. We will compare these data as well as our own results with ground-based measurements at the surface such as GEBA and BSRN and satellite-based measurement at TOA (CERES and ERBE), and compare with other results in the literature for global radiation budget. These AR4 data will be one of main dataset for our global radiation budget study.
