of the capac ity .of the atmosphere to sustain the equilibrium is bound to disturb the heal budget of the earthatmosphere
system. Radiometric parameters of the atmosphere give an early indication of the trends in the longterm
climatic changes. Whi le the global rad iant exposure is no t likely to show perceptible changes due to the
