Paper Abstract

The atmospheric radiative fluxes and cloud radiative forcing are simulated with use of different models of water vapor continuum absorption and cloud optical depths. The effects of radiative heating and cooling of the cirrus cloudiness are analysed. A contribution of water vapor continuum absorption to the atmospheric radiative transfer is estimated. It is shown that sign of cloud radiative effect depends on choice of water vapor continuum model.
