A102:
The Surface Energy Budget: Influences on Spatiotemporal Magnitude and Variability





Session ID#: 22716

Session Description:
The surface energy budget is a key determinant in the climate system, being the primary integrating quantity of climate process and change, starting with downwelling radiation bearing the footprint of all changes in atmospheric composition including greenhouse gases, clouds, and aerosols. We invite papers on all facets of the global and regional surface energy budgets based on surface observations, satellite-derived records, reanalysis data, and global and regional climate model simulations. Special emphasis is placed on all aspects of field measurements of atmospheric radiation, as well as on the spatial and temporal variations of the different radiative and non-radiative (i.e. latent and sensible heat fluxes) components of the surface energy balance. Studies of the effects of cloud and aerosol forcing on surface energy climatology and trends, including the solar dimming and brightening phenomenon, and their causes are of interest along with other validated proxy means to represent the surface energy components.
