Abstract
Satellite measurements from the Earth Radiation Budget Experiment (ERBE) are providing important quantitative data on the diurnal variability of broadband shortwave and longwave radiation. The results derived from the combination of the Earth Radiation Budget Satellite (ERBS) and NOAA-9 indicate that the largest diurnal variations in longwave radiation occur typically over deserts and over land areas which experience intense convective activity. Maximum values of the albedo diurnal amplitude factor are over oceans. Seasonal and cloud cover variations have important effects on the diurnal cycles of Earth's radiation budget. ERBE results derived for individual regions are in substantial agreement with the diurnal results derived from the Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite (GOES) measurements.
