A31C:
Improved Understanding of the Surface Energy Balance and the Spatiotemporal Variation of Its Components III Posters


Session ID#: 8399

Session Description:
The surface radiative energy budget is a key determinant in the climate system. As such, it is imperative that this budget and the influences on the budget be understood and well documented. We invite papers on all aspects of the global and regional surface energy budgets based on surface measurements, satellite-derived estimates, reanalysis products, and climate model simulations. Emphasis is placed on all aspects of field measurements of atmospheric radiation and non-radiative components (e.g., latent and sensible heat fluxes) including spatial and temporal variations. Related studies based on changes in the cloud and aerosol forcing are also welcome. Special attention will be given to papers dealing with the solar dimming/brightening phenomenon. As well, papers that use validated proxy data to spatially and temporally extend our knowledge on the variations in some of the surface energy components (e.g., sunshine duration, pan evaporation, visibility or tree-rings) are encouraged.
