Summary
Abstract: [Source: NASA/GISS, http://isccp.giss.nasa.gov/projects/flux.html ]

A new version of the upwelling and downwelling, shortwave and longwave
radiative fluxes has been calculated at the top of the atmosphere, in the
atmosphere, and at the surface using a complete radiative transfer model from
the GISS GCM (revised) with improved observations of the physical properties ... View entire text
