Restarting this.

What is Radiative Forcing?
The biologist speculates, "What's the meaning of life?"
The physicist asks, "In the universe, does matter really matter?"
The chemist replies, "I shall find solutions to both questions."

Relative effectiveness of a GHG to restrict long-wave radiation from escaping back into space. Negative radiative forcing means cooling, positive means net heating.

Also can someone teach me how to use the answer thing?

Click the hide button. Write the subject, add a "|", then write the text you want hidden.
Like so:
Subject|Text


I guess I'll restart this question marathon.

Describe/explain relationship between spatial and radiometric resolution (How increasing one affects the other in a sensor)

Answer
A higher spatial resolution leads to a smaller IFOV, which reduces radiometric resolution, so they have an inverse relationship.

How does synthetic aperture radar (SAR) work? Why is it used so frequently? In what applications is it used?
