Abstract:

A method of compuing the temperture changes due to infraed radiation flux divergence is presented. he method is based upon a tabular scheme developed by D. L. ooks J. eteor. 7313-321, 1950. pplition of the method to atual data shows that the raiaive temper-ATURE CHANGES CAN EXCEED THE OBSERVED TEMPERAURE CHANGES AT NIGHT. he raditive temperaure changes decrease wih elevation and become 1 - 2 degrees per day at about 100 meters. Severl applcaions of the method in boundary layer stuies are also indcted. Author
