The Model of Dependence of the Temperature of the Surface Layer of Atmosphere from the Earth's Albedo and Thermal Inertia of the Hydrosphere

Nicolay Nikolayevich Zavalishin (Siberian Regional Research Hydrometeorological Institute)


The assumption of M. Milankovich about the constancy of the Earth's albedo  during the interglacial period was replaced with the alternative one. The model was developed where  anomalies of the average annual temperature of the surface atmosphere were related with interannual changes in the planetary albedo and the thermal inertia of the hydrosphere.  The surface temperature changes due to albedo actual and model changes were calculated. Possible external causes of albedo changes were considered.


radiation imbalance; hemisphere’s albedo; Milankovich theory; model extension; geospheres’ heat balance; variability of the planetary albedo; near-surface atmosphere; temperature.
