Paper Abstract

In this work, we present a methodology to obtain the daily net radiation flux from NOAA-AVHRR data. To get this objective we need firstly to obtain shortwave net radiation flux from the solar global radiation flux and the albedo map. Secondly, we need to obtain the upward longwave radiation flux from surface temperature and emissivity and the downward longwave radiation flux from air temperature. Like an example of application of this methodology a daily net radiation flux image of the Iberian Peninsula is presented, in which we show that daily net radiation flux can be obtained with a satisfactory precision lower than 1.0 mmday-1.
