SatFC-G: Basic Principles of Radiation
  • Describe the concept of radiation and the relationship between radiance and reflected solar and earth-emitted energy
  • Describe reflected solar and terrestrial radiation as they relate to satellite observations
  • Understand how solar and terrestrial radiation is selectively absorbed, reflected, and scattered by atmospheric constituents
  • Understand radiative transfer processes
  • Understand selective absorption through the atmosphere
