Some formulas derived using the data of actinometric sounding for use in calculation of radiative cooling of air when processing the data of airborne and radiosonde sounding are verified in this paper. It is shown that they make it possible to precalculate vertical distribution of air temperature in the lower part of the boundary layer under the cloudless conditions and are useful for estimating the radiative cooling of the upper troposphere at the downwelling adiabatic air motion.
