Abstract:

A graphical procedure is developed whereby radiative fluxes may be calculated, and thereby the temperature changes in atmospheres of arbitrary structure, taking into account the laws for the absorption of diffuse radiation with absorption coefficients that vary with wavelength. The absorption of direct solar radiation is also taken into account.
