The results of measurements of longwave effective outgoing radiation and downward fluxes at the ground at eight stations in India during 1958-1962 arc presented. Maps showing the distribution month by month of the net outgoing and downward infra-red fluxes have been prepared. The net outgoing radiation is a maximum during the dry months and a minimum during the monsoon over the whole country. The downward flux is a maximum during May to September and a minimum during winter. Comparisons with value's computed from radiation charts show the calculated values to be substantially higher than those observed.
