Abstract
In recent yecas much attention has been devoted to the effect that clouds have on the radiative exchanges that take place in the Earth-atmosphere system. Solar arid thermal nonlinear radiation feedback processes that take place among layered clouds and the Earth's surface (water, land, snow, arid ice) play a central role in influencing and moderating global climatic change. The current consensus among cloud-climate researchers is that they have a net cooling effect on climate, but to how great a degree is as yet in question.
