A well-known feature of the radiation budget of theGLAS GCM is that the solar radiation absorbed bythe earth-atmosphere system is generally simulatedvery well, while the model systematically underestimates the amount of energy lost to space by infrared radiation. It is believed that the source of theproblem in the infrared is the model's unrealisticoptical properties of clouds in this region of thespectrum. All clouds in the model, including thosethat are intended to represent atmospheric

simulated severe thunderstorm using a sophisticated microphysical scheme has yielded further insight into the cause of the enhanced V and the interaction between infrared radiation and storm microphysics. Results suggested that the enhanced V was produced by the interaction between the overshooting dome and the region of high pressure located upstream. In short, the enhanced V was created by downstream and subsiding transport of relatively cold cloud material ejected from the overshooting dome. The

On eleven clays in June and July, 1903, I maclea long series of observations on the summit of the G nrnei&at, Canton Wallis, Switzerland, from which I could derivethe radiation of the sun outside our atmosphere. This part ofthe problem is the most dificult one, and according to my viewit can not be solved from measurements of the solar radiationalone. From

downward LW and SW radiation fluxes for the different model configurations, RRTM versus G00 in the LW and SW4 versus SW2 in the SW, for whole- and clear-sky atmospheres. The impact of changing the number of spectral intervals (from four to two) in the near-infrared part of the spectrum is very small for clear-sky SW radiation (a 0.4 W m −2 decrease in the daytime-only average). The impact is larger for cloudy conditions (−2 W m −2 when averaged over daytime only). A new version of the SW scheme, SW6

accretion of snow by graupel ( P GACS ). The exchanges between water and ice hydrometeors are described by accretion of cloud water by snow ( P SACW ) and graupel ( P GACW ), and melting of snow ( P SMLT ) and graupel ( P GMLT ) to rain. The model also includes interactive solar ( Chou et al. 1998 ) and thermal infrared ( Chou et al. 1991 ; Chou and Suarez 1994 ) radiation parameterization schemes that are performed every 3 min. The water and ice clouds affect radiation budgets through parameterized

-electric cells and an electrometer.The variations of the three spectral regions, thermic (infra-red), luminous and ultra-violet, are in close relationto one another. In general, an increase in the total radiation is accompanied by a marked increase in theultra-violet, while a decrease in the total is accompaniedby a relative increase in the infra-red. Owing to the sensitiveness of the instrument, it will be possible to detect slight variations in the total solarradiation, since radiation in narrow spectral

PRESSURE AND TEMPERATUREDEPENDENCEThe measurements, as w-ell as the quantum theory ofthe water molecule, prove that the water vapor spectrum consists of a large number of very narrow spectral lines. R e need a formula which gives the intensity distributionin a spectral line, i. e. the absorption coefficient as a func- tion of the wavelength or frequency of the radiation.This distribution depends upon
