Transport of Infrared Atmospheric Radiation

Fundamentals of the Greenhouse Phenomenon

This book sets out to give a rigorous mathematical description of the greenhouse effect through the theory of infrared atmospheric emission. In contrast to traditional climatological analysis, this approach eschews empirical relations in favour of a strict thermodynamical derivation, based on data from NASA and from the HITRAN spectroscopy database. The results highlight new aspects of the role of clouds in the greenhouse effect.

  • Includes the fundamentals of atmospheric physics and thermodynamics of atmospheric emission.
  • Based on a wide range of atmospheric data.
  • With considerations on the effects of emissions generated by humans.
