THEORY OF RADIATION MEASUREMENTS
Radiation measurements from the surface, inside the atmosphere, and from satellites are essential for understanding the climate and monitoring its behaviour. The principles of such measurements are discussed, including the choice of different detectors and other key components, system cooling, and observational details. The basis for calculations of the expected performance parameters, such as signal-to-noise ratio and minimum detectable temperature change, is developed and system trade-offs discussed.
