Hansen, J., W. Rossow, B. Carlson, A. Lacis, L. Travis, A. Del Genio, I. Fung, B. Cairns, M. Mishchenko, and M. Sato, 1995: Low-cost long-term monitoring of global climate forcings and feedbacks. Climatic Change, 31, 247-271, doi:10.1007/BF01095149.

We describe the rationale for long-term monitoring of global climate forcings and radiative feedbacks as a contribution to interpretation of long-term global temperature change. Our discussion is based on a more detailed study and workshop report (Hansen et al., 1993b). We focus on the potential contribution of a proposed series of inexpensive small satellites, but we discuss the need for complementary, space-based monitoring, climate process studies, and ground-based measurements. Some other measurements could be made inexpensively by students, providing both valuable climate data and science educational experience.
