dc.description.abstractAn integrated marine atmospheric boundary layer (MABL) model is evaluated relative to its ability to estimate longwave and shortwave radiation. the model is initialized and verified using data taken during the 1983 Mixed Layer Dynamics Experiment (MILDEX). Model computations of shortwave and longwave radiation are compared with measurements made during both atmospheric frontal and non-frontal situations. The model results did not always agree with the measurements but reasons for them seem to be known and are discussed. One problem is that the MABL only predicts clouds in the boundary layer and does not consider upper clouds. This led to most of the major differences. Further development of the model with upper-layer cloud specifications is needed to overcome the major differences encountered in this evaluation.en_US
