humidity occurring aloft in the lower layers of the atmosphere produce changesof several degrees in the nocturnal minimum temperature at screen height.1. Introduction A radiative-conductive thermal equilibrium isoften reached at the surface a few hours after sunseton clear nights with calm winds and relatively lowground moisture and air humidity. This equilibriumresults as the surface cools after sunset by emissionof infrared radiation. As the surface temperaturedrops, this emission diminishes until

protection. Radiant heat-ing by infrared has been proposed as a protective measurelor use i n the case of advection frost [3].The terms radiation and advect8ion frost are sorne-what arbitrary. Cool, clear, dry air, advected into aregion, set's the stage for unobstructed radiation of heatfrom soil and plant. R a d i h v e processes contribute tothe heat exchange during an advection frost. Consider-able loss ol heat is due to the conduction of energy intothe cold air and it8s subsequent t,ransport.It' is

channels (e.g., see Coakley andBretherton, 1982). These techniques normally assumethat clouds in the infrared are blackbodies, however. In a recent paper by Barton (1983), data from twonarrow-band channels in the H20-CO2 2.7 #m bandon board Nimbus 5 were analyzed to yield the highcloud cover and height information. The advantage tousing this absorption band is that because of strongabsorption no radiation reflected by the surface or lowand middle clouds is detected by the radiometer, exceptclouds

satellite. Provided the offline code for the satellite infrared band and the model radiation code have comparable accuracy, disagreement between satellite and model-derived brightness temperature can then realistically be attributed to errors in the model's thermodynamic and cloud fields. Over 10 yr of operation of the cloud validation scheme, a substantial amount of model data have been produced. Analysis of these results has shown that although the comparison of the model's cloud fields with
