Net terrestrial radiant flux in the vertical over Pune
Keywords:Terrestrial radiant flux, Radiometersondes, Mean annual distribution, Seasonal changes, Aerosols particles, Water vapour
The terrestrial radiant fluxes are being measured regularly at Pune using a balloon-borne radiometersonde. The net terrestrial radiant fluxes obtained from these measurements over a decade have been studied and results presented. The net terrestrial radiant flux increases with height and reaches a maximum around 12 km and then the rate of increase slows down near tropopause. In the lower stratosphere the fluxes again Increase before reaching a nearly steady value at around 25 km. The clouds and rainfall distributions seriously distort the radiation field.
