Solar Irradiance of the Earth's Atmosphere
Description: For over a 100 years there has been an increase in solar energy being trapped by the Earth, leading to global warming and climate change. Depletion of atmospheric ozone molecules has created holes for harmful radiation to reach earth's surface. The basic scientific data in current atmospheric models lack accurate parameters for fundamental atomic and molecular processes. This book part explores the ability of climate models to predict the response of the earth's atmosphere to changes in elemental and molecular composition.
