A simple formula is proposed to calculate the longwave radiative influx near the Earth's surface. The radiative influx is expressed in terms of the temperature of the level examined, the temperature of the underlying surface and a derivative of the transmission function of the layer between the level examined at the Earth's surface. By comparison with more precise calculations, the validity is estimated of the simple formula for different atmospheric stratifications.
