Chen, B., J.-Q. Zhao, L. Chen, G. Shi, 2015: Reply to the comments of F. Fujibe on "Anthropogenic heat release: Estimation of global distribution and possible climate effect" by Chen, B. et al. J. Meteor. Soc. Japan, 93, 505-508.
- Due to the high-precision grid and unique ability to detect low levels of visible and near-infrared radiance at night, the DMSP/OLS data provides an effective way to estimate large-scale and high-resolution distribution of AHR. Above all, the results of global distribution of AHR by applying DMSP/OLS data is generally consistent with energy consumption statistics, while errors occur inevitably. This method provide us a new way to obtain credible large-scale continuous high-precision grid distribution of AHR, which is very important for the research of AHR in climate models.
