Abstract:

The radiation balance of the earths surface, equal to the difference between the absorbed solar radiation and the effective long-wave radiation, is one of the radiation indices of the radiation climate of a locality. Data on the radiation balance at the present time are used widely in researches of the genesis of climate, in the study of methods of hydrometeorological prognosis, in the study of the effect of meteorological factors on the hydrological regime, etc. A discussion and tabulated data are presented.
