Earth's Energy Budget

Earth's energy budget is a metaphor for the delicate equilibrium between energy received from The Sun versus energy radiated back out in to space. Research into precise details of Earth's energy budget is vital for understanding how the planet's climate may be changing, as well as variabilities in solar energy output. Missions like NASA's TSIS will help scientists keep a close watch.
