Abstract : In the monograph results of theoretical and experimental investigations of the field of terrestrial radiation are generalized. Methods of calculations and measurements are briefly discussed. Angular spectral characteristics of outgoing emission for shortwave and long-wave radiation are thoroughly examined. A survey is made of works on the problem of radiation balance of the earth-atmosphere system. Considerable attention is given to the problem of outgoing radiation fluxes on surface of different angles. (Author)
