Calculate the long-wave back radiation


INTERFACE:

   subroutine back_radiation(method,dlat,tw,ta,cloud,qb)
DESCRIPTION:

Here, the long-wave back radiation is calculated by means of one out of four methods, which depend on the value given to the parameter method: method=1: Clark et al. (1974), method=2: Hastenrath and Lamb (1978), method=3: Bignami et al. (1995), method=4: Berliand and Berliand (1952). It should ne noted that the latitude must here be given in degrees.
