Some of 3-year work results of the radiometer IKOR-M which was installed on «Meteor-M» № 1 satellite are reported. Measurement error are reviewed and evaluated. Results of calculations of the absorbed solar radiation (ASR) are given for arrays: the World’s ocean, land, oceans in particular. The data in the form of tables of mean monthly and mean annual values together with their root mean square are presented. The analyses data of latitudinal distributions for 17 meridional cross-sections in the zone of ±45° of latitude along the equator are given. As the example of cross-sections for the three oceans data about the annual budgets of the ASR were obtained and curves of their annual variations were built. The methods of decomposition of the month’s latitudinal distributions are proposed.
Keywords: радиометр, альбедо, поглощенная радиация, меридиональные разрезы, широтные распределения, the radiometer, albedo, the absorbed solar radiation, the meridional transects, the latitudinal distribution
