The energy balance of the stratosphere is discussed and the role of radiative heating in determining the climatology of the stratosphere is highlighted. Requirements for radiation transfer calculations in the middle atmosphere are discussed. Simple models are used to illustrate the effect of uncertainties in radiative heating calculations on the modelled stratospheric climatology.
