Celebrating 30 years of broadcasting in the Pacific

Today marks the 30-year anniversary of RNZ Pacific, formerly called RNZ International. On January 24, 1990, Radio New Zealand International beamed into the Pacific on a new 100 kilowatt transmitter. Amelia Langford has more. Many remote communities in Pacific island countries rely on shortwave radio.

Remote Sensing, Vol. 12, Pages 372: Intercomparison of Machine-Learning Methods for Estimating Surface Shortwave and Photosynthetically Active Radiation

Satellite-derived estimates of downward surface shortwave radiation (SSR) and photosynthetically active radiation (PAR) are a part of the surface radiation budget, an essential climate variable (ECV) required by climate and vegetation models. Ground measurements are insufficient for generating....

Analyzing changes in the complexity of climate in the last four decades using MERRA-2 radiation data

The energy balance of the Earth is controlled by the shortwave and longwave radiation emitted to space. Changes in the thermodynamic state of the system over time affect climate and are noticeable when viewing the system as a whole. In this paper, we study the changes in the complexity of climate in....

Remote Sensing, Vol. 12, Pages 181: Estimation of Surface Downward Shortwave Radiation over China from Himawari-8 AHI Data Based on Random Forest

Downward shortwave radiation ( R S ) drives many processes related to atmospheresurface interactions and has great influence on the earth’s climate system. However, ground-measured R S is still insufficient to represent the land surface, so it is still critical to generate high accuracy and spatially continuous R S data.

Which Climates Are Best for Passive Cooling Technologies?

A group of University of California­, San Diego researchers set out to gain a better understanding of the thermal balance of power plants and surfaces, like heliostat mirrors or solar panels, when exposed to both solar (shortwave) and atmospheric (longwave) radiation.

Which climates are best for passive cooling technologies?

Credit: Carlos Coimbra. WASHINGTON, D.C., June 25, 2019 -- A group of University of California, San Diego researchers set out to gain a better understanding of the thermal balance of power plants and surfaces, like heliostat mirrors or solar panels, when exposed to both solar (shortwave) and atmospheric (longwave) radiation.

Certain climates are better suited for passive cooling technologies

have investigated the role that cloud cover and relative humidity play when surfaces such as solar panels are exposed to shortwave and longwave radiation. To identify the exact role water plays, the team needed to determine how much heat can be rejected to outer space and how much is radiated back by the atmosphere.

Remote Sensing, Vol. 11, Pages 1130: Satellite-based Cloudiness and Solar Energy Potential in Texas and Surrounding Regions

Abstract Global horizontal irradiance (i.e., shortwave downward solar radiation received by a horizontal surface on the ground) is an important geophysical variable for climate and energy research. Since solar radiation is attenuated by clouds, its variability is intimately associated with the variability of cloud properties.
