Surface Radiation Budget Activity

Information on the gain or loss of radiant energy at the Earth's surface is needed to address problems related to climate issues, hydrologic and bio-geophysical modelling, solar energy applications, and agriculture. At the University of Maryland, Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science, Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Research Group, has been developing methods to infer components of surface radiative fluxes from satellite observations. Selected information on past and current related activities are provided in what follows:
