Abstract

Within the framework of a correct model, by using long-term satellite information, we study the relations “radiation–cloudiness,” which are the most important characteristics of energy redistribution between the ocean and the atmosphere. They determine the spatial, seasonal, and interannual oscillations of solar and long-wave radiation in these media and stimulate circulation processes. The annual radiation regime of land and polar oceanic areas shows the present tendency towards global warming. On the average for a year, the radiation budget of the ocean–atmosphere system for the latitudinal zone between 63°N–63°S is stable towards significant variations of the conditions of cloudiness. In this region, the World Ocean acts as a factor stabilizing the global climate. The Earth represents a self-regulating system at the present stage of its evolution, and its climate varies slightly according to certain cycles.
