I apologize for lacking the time to polish this page .

Re : Planetary temperature
Seeking an executable understanding of the differential in a voxel
because mapping it over a sphere is rather trivial in an APL like CoSy
Gravity not "Green House Gas" spectrum is
why the bottoms of atmospheres are hotter than their tops .
But it is not in the energy balance equations .
Photons themselves heat ( blue shift ) in a gravitational well .
It is only a matter of working out the equations for all other matter including atmospheres
For those who truly grok classical physics , it should become clear upon reflection that of the 2 macroscopic forces only asymmetric centripetal GRAVITY can "trap" heat , ie : energy , and in fact must do so to make the equations balance .
In fact simple computations match atmospheric temperature profiles with undeniable accuracy for all measured planets . See recently my comments on , eg : Watts Up With That : On #COP21 and the Madness of Crowds .
ElectroMagnetic spectral effects, constrained by the Divergence Theorem , cannot .
Al Gore & James Hansen "Green House Gas" demonization of CO2 , the source of carbon to carbon based life , gets an F in physics at a very fundamental level .

I split this discussion from CoSy's venerable Global Temperature page to start a ion focused on the actual quantitative audit trail ( h/t Lavoisier who brought accounting to alchemy transmuting it into chemistry ) from the energy we receive almost totally from the Sun to our observed surface temperature .
Physics is the mathematical abstraction of ,
as an old Hindu buddy would say : ? What is happening ?
The discussion will be highly prejudiced for the presentation of equations , preferably executable algorithms in some freely available array capable language . This blog is a continuation of the educational effort started at http://climatewiki.org/wiki/Category:Essential_Physics ( archived ) , which works out the geometry of the portion of the celestial sphere subtended by the Sun and the Stefan-Boltzmann
Quantitatively reducing this 3% unexplained variance is the goal .
The analysis begun in :Essential_Physics was continued with my Heartland presentation , The Basic Basics or How to Calculate the Equilibrium Temperature of a Radiantly Heated Uniformly colored ball , which boils down to
The next parameter which needs to be added to the computations
The filtering of the atmosphere can be collapsed by a product across matricies .

I'm sorry I don't have more time for this discussion because there is a lot which would be I think generally useful to get clearly communicated . I resonate to such details as "each pixel is 8 bits for most of the satellite channels" . I assume that is for each of some number of spectrally filtered channels ? Your second paragraph reflects any of the problems Roy Spencer describes at http://www.drroyspencer.com/2015/04/version-6-0-of-the-uah-temperature-dataset-released-new-lt-trend-0-11-cdecade/ . I would be quite interested in what your "tools" are built in . APLs can express algorithms over data often orders of magnitude more succinctly and therefore more understandably to the math capable mind than traditional languages . Since in APLs
