BASIC RADIATION PHYSICS 3 Physical quantities and units Physical quantities are characterized by their numerical value (magnitude) and associated unit. Symbols for physical quantities are set in italic type, while symbols for units are set in roman type (e.g. m = 21 kg; E = 15 MeV). The numerical value and the unit of a physical quantity must be separatedFile Size: KB.

Such computer models largely agree on many predictions of how climate will be 'forced' to a different state by such changes but there is still much disagreement, more specifically how such forcing will also results in 'feedbacks' to the system.

For example, increased CO 2 will increase the green house effect resulting in warmer atmosphere and more melting of Arctic ice. Extinction and Radiation - What causes the rise and fall of a group.

satellite. The Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) experiment is providing the first dedicated measurements of the ERB components from geosta-tionary orbit.

The paper describes the science back-ground, the instrument and operations, and presents some of the first data. GERB has been performing very successfully since launch. Preliminary analysis showed that these differences can be explained by results of theoretical and experimental study of the response of the detectors to the environmental photon fields.

proposed European Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) program. The Earth Radiation Budget Measurement of the Earth radiation budget (ERB) is one approach to quantifying issues such as the greenhouse effect and general climate changes that the Earth-atmosphere system undergoes.

The ERB is the difference between the radiation coming. Comparisons between data from the Geostationary Earth Radiation Budget (GERB) instrument on Meteosat−8 and simulations performed with the Met Office operational Numerical Weather Prediction (NWP) model have been conducted since May at the model analysis times (0, 6, 12 and 18 UTC).
