Description

'rnl' computes daily net energy flux emitted by the Earth's surface.

Usage

1
rnl(Tmax,Tmin,sol_rad,vap_pres,extraT,tal)

Arguments

Tmax

Vector of length n containing daily maximum temperature [C].

Tmin

Vector of length n containing daily minumum temperature [C].

sol_rad

Vector of length n of daily solar radiation [MJm-2d-1].

vap_pres

Vector of length n of mean daily vapour pressure [kPa].

extraT

Vector of length n of extraterrestrial solar radiation [MJm-2d-1].

tal

Clear sky transmissivity.

Details

According to the Stefan-Boltzmann law, the longwave energy emission is proportional to the absolute temperature of the surface raised to the fourth power. This longwave energy is corrected by two factors: humidity ('ea') and cloudiness (estimated based on relation of actual and potential solar radiation. See Allen et al. (1998) for details.

Value

Vector of length n of daily net longwave radiation. [MJm-2d-1]
