|Atmospheric Energy Fluxes||The global mean partitioning of
energy at the top of atmosphere, surface, and within the atmosphere.
If there were no hydrologic processes or atmospheric absorbers/emitters,
a simple balance would be achieved between net incoming solar radiation
and emitted longwave (or thermal) radiation.
Clouds significantly alter the partitioning of energy in the atmosphere. Other components and processes of the hydrologic cycle, including evaporation and water vapor also are critical.
Which flux is immediately impacted
by increased amounts of atmospheric CO2?
