Hi, This is my first post, and it will be a dozy. I have been looking at the Kimoto equation for surface temperature flux which has been a bit of a buzz in the blogosphere. It is a very elegant equation, that unfortunately requires coefficients for each flux and the coefficients are function of each other. Fairly complicated relationship, though I think I have the equilibrium value of the emissivity coefficient for the radiative flux and the basic form of the function of e, the coefficient of emissivity with respect to conduction and latent heat flux. I was wondering if there are any of you that might wish to look at my crude methods and possibly like an interesting though extremely controversial project for your spare time.

That is the link to the basics which is difficult to follow, but provides consistent results indicating that they are probably very close to correct. There are a few newer posts that clear things up somewhat, and a few posts on the blog related to the physical processes that lead to the counter intuitive conclusions.
