Paper Abstract

Measurements of surface radiation fluxes and radiosonde sounding data under overcast cloud situations during spring-summer 1988 at Barrow (Alaska) are analyzed. These data were combined with calculations from simple radiation models to estimate the surface radiation budget as well as reflectance, transmittance, and absorptance of the earth-atmosphere system on an hourly basis. Warming/cooling rates of the whole atmosphere were computed. These parameters for clear sky conditions are also presented.
