We describe a method for retrieving cirrus particle size information on a near-global scale 50 deg S to 50 deg N using currently available satellite data from ISCCP. The initial results of this near-global survey show that the peak frequency of cirrus crystal effective diameter De for hexagons is about 70 #m, the mean value corresponding to a #m radius for an equivalent sphere.

The survey also reveals that about 14% of the small crystal sizes are less than 23 #m in diameter. The. Get this from a library. A near-global survey of cirrus particle size using ISCCP.

Introduction [2] Cirrus clouds play a significant role in the energy budget of the earth‐atmosphere system by their effects on the transfer of radiant energy through the atmosphere [Hansen et al., ], and they are critical to understanding feedback processes that regulate or modulate the climate response to many low clouds that have a cooling effect on solar radiation Cited by: Like the second-generation ISCCP-FD, it includes all upwelling and downwelling, shortwave and longwave radiative fluxes at the top of the atmosphere (TOA), at three levels in the atmosphere, and at the surface using a complete radiative transfer model, developed from the GISS GCM ModelE with improved observations of the physical properties of.

Using optical scattering theory, the size of a particle is related to the measured scattering cross section. The par- ticle size distribution n(r) is approximated by a histogram ni =n(r;1ri) defined as the numbers of particles whose ra- dius is within a set of size bins 1ri =(ri, ri + 1i).

Determining cirrus particle sizes from passive IR speetroscopy alone requires comparing the obser- vations against model calculations. Palmer et a/.[21] have shown that particle size (for assumed spherical ice particles) is correlated with slope of the continuum between 10 and 12/(m (Fig.
