Is it so easy?

In principle the incoming solar irradiance reaching the Top of the atmosphere (ToA) can be computed easily using the principles of spherical geometry and the astro-mechanical parameters (distance Sun-Earth, obliquity of the orbit, perhelion and inclination of the rotational axis), which are determining the Earth‘s orbit around the Sun.

slide3

Summary of possible error sources in computations of the insolation at ToA:

  • Total solar irradiance (TSI = ~ 1361 Wm-2), solar cycles
  • Orbital parameters : eccentricity, obliquity, perihelion
  • Inclusion of a leapday (strictly the tropical year?)
  • Spatial resolution, time resolution
  • Definition of sunset and sunrise
  • Definition of TOA

and

  • Occasional bugs in the code !

Monthly zonal anomalies in IPPC models related to ISCCP

slide8

Modelers (e.g. for the IPCC AR4) and also climatologists (ISCCP and SRB) obtain often different results ! Should we tolerate ?

Tild of axis ±0.5 degrees

slide10

ISCCP minus SRB: Monthly global averages of the insolation at TOA Why do the seasonal differences increase with time ?

Data from ISCCP and SRB projects

slide12

How are the other radiation climatologies computing the insolation at TOA?

-.-.-.-

Please don’t forget: There is only one Sun – Earth - System ! Therefore modelers and climatologists should compute the same solar input into the climate system.
