There is a growing demand for accurate, observationally-based estimates of the fluxes of radiative energy throughout the atmosphere both to drive observational analyses of global energy balance as well as to evaluate global models. This presentation explores the potential benefits of combining satellite-based multispectral and hyperspectral radiances with active measurements for refining estimates of the many factors that influence the Earth’s radiation budget.
