Paper Abstract

The availability of a 15-year data set of radiative fluxes from the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) allows us to investigate the interannual variability of top-of-the-atmosphere (TOA) outgoing longwave radiation (OLR) and reflected shortwave radiation (SWR). Variance maps and empirical orthogonal function (EOF) analysis are used to describe temporal and spatial patterns of variability.
