Earth's climate is largely determined by the planet's energy budget, i.e., the
balance of incoming and outgoing radiation. It is measured by satellites and
shown in W/m<sup>2</sup>...
Planets have some heat. The Earth and other planets retain some residual heat
left from the .... Earth loses heat energy to outer space mainly by radiation.
Earth's temperature depends on how much sunlight the land, oceans, and
atmosphere absorb, and how much heat the planet radiates back to space. ... of
solar energy that falls on the Earth, 29% is reflected back into space, primarily by
clouds, ... This large increase in heat loss in response to a relatively smaller
increase in ...
In the troposphere radiation is emitted and absorbed primarily in a balanced .....
doesn't have to exceed surface radiation in order to change the net heat loss, .....
That is why the temperature of a planet like Earth is independent of the albedo.
Oct 16, 2014 ... An object is placed exactly halfway between the Earth and sun. The object will

In the tropical regions the albedo variation is influenced primarily by weather ....
Does the presence of low level clouds over oceans heat or cool the planet?
Earth's climate system is driven primarily by heat ener- gy arriving from ... Earth
arrives mainly in the visible part of the spectrum. ... This heat loss, called back
radiation, occurs at wave- ... seems reasonable that the surface of planet Earth
Earth (planet) ... This is why planets and stars take a long time to cool down. ...
Convection does not occur at the Sun's core, it loses heat primarily through ...
The radar imaging of the planet has been performed both from Earth-based ...
Earth loses 70 percent of its heat through the rifts between plates, venus gets rid
of its ... of the surface, again as determined primarily from the Magellan mission.
That is, it is neither a source of heat nor a sink of heat in the planet's heat budget.
... The good absorbers of longwave IR radiation in air are primarily water vapor, ...
so the earth's surface loses heat while the atmosphere gains latent heat.
