Incoming longwave radiation enhancement by cloud cover

Description :
The effect of cloud cover on incoming longwave radiation reaching the ground surface is investigated using an analytic procedure. Results show that the contribution of a cloud deck depends not only on cloud type, but also on cloudless emissivity. Results in this paper explain the difference between observed and empirically derived incoming longwave radiation during overcast conditions in cold and mountainous regions. This investigation is carried out using a simplified theoretical model based on the concept of a gray atmosphere.
