By A. S. Monin (auth.)

During the final two decades the research of, and the prediction of, alterations within the weather of our planet became an pressing social relevant, addressed to scientists across the world. the 1st ideas on which to base this sort of research have been formulated in 1974 in Stockholm, on the overseas GARP convention at the actual basics of weather conception and weather modeling. In 1979 the realm Meteorological association and the overseas Council of clinical Unions determined to behavior an international application of weather learn. This international weather application is designed more often than not to enquire the variety of the weather on time scales starting from a couple of weeks to some many years and to create a systematic foundation for the long term forecasting of climate. there's at the present a distinct want for a monograph which may function an creation to the idea of weather. On a qualitative point (without the gear of theoretical physics and arithmetic) such an advent has already been awarded, partly I of a e-book at the background of weather via Yu. A. Shishkov and the writer (Monin and Shishkov, 1979). half II of that paintings offers genuine facts on climatic alterations throughout the process the Earth's historical past. the current e-book is designed to supply such an advent on a quantita­ tive level.

It has different values for the two crystalline forms of calcium carbonate: calcite and (denser) aragonite. At a pressure of 1 atm (or 105 Pa) and a temperature of 25°C, for calcite Ksp = 10- 834 , whereas for aragonite Ksp = 10- 8 , that is, it is about twice as great. 82 X 10- 7 with a temperature rise from 0 to 30oq, and the calcium carbonate saturation r = [Ca++] [C0 3] . (K'spt' is calculated. In the ocean a "compensation depth" Zc can be discerned, above which the water is supersaturated with calcium carbonate (and it readily precipitates out in the form of shells of marine organisms) and below which it is undersaturated (and carbonate deposits become dissolved).

3) where a A and 0A are the spectral coefficients of absorption and scattering per unit mass of the medium (measured in cm 2 /g, whereas coefficients (JaA and (JaA , calculated per unit volume of the medium, have units of reciprocal length); YA is the spectral scattering function (the conditional probability of a direction n = ({), 'IfJ) of the scattered radiation for a fixed direction n ' = ({}I, 'IfJ') of the incident radiation), usually a function only of the cosine cos 8 = n . (cos 8) dQ(n) = 1; and BA is the ratio of the spectral coefficients of radiation and absorption.

2) az where the approximate equality signifies the approximation of a locally plane-parallel medium with its transverse direction along the vertical. This approximation is valid, since the horizontal divergence of field P is much less than the vertical divergence, and it is suitable for directions of radiation propagation making angles of more than 5° to the horizontal. 1) over values of n, respectively, from the upper hemisphere (n i) and from the lower hemisphere (n 1). In the atmosphere pi and pl are about 350 W/m 2 , and (JE, is about 35 W/(m 2 km).
