Short summary
This work describes a new type of observational simulator for directly comparing measurements and models that takes advantage of all of the information in spectrally resolved top-of-atmosphere data. It describes how to model how the spectrum of the Earth, both in the shortwave and the long wave, changes in response to climate forcings, and provides a path towards inline observational simulation for the upcoming Coupled Model Intercomparison Project – Phase 6.
