Abstract:

The transfer of solar radiation on a global scale in the Earth's atmosphere is studied. We discuss pioneering domestic and foreign works on the mathematical simulation of terrestrial radiation field and on the methods of numerical solution of general boundary-value problem of the radiative transfer theory for a spherical shell with a reflecting underlying surface. The optical transfer operator of the spherical atmosphere-Earth system is constructed. Models of the forcing functions for the spherical problem of transfer theory are formulated.
