Paper Abstract

Processed ERBE data are used in several studies in which NMC global analyses and forecasts are examined and evaluated. In the first study ERBE net radiation values for four months are avergaged and integrated to provide global net energy transport. Energy transport by atmospheric circulations is obtained using NMC analyses and results provide a measure ofreasonableness of the analyses. In the second and third experiments ERBE values of outgoing longwave radiation are used as ''topside truth'' to examine the both spinup problem and the radiation algorithms of the global forecasts. 1.
