Abstract:

Aerosol spectroscopy is a new field confronted with placing in proper perspective a large body of existing popular fact which has its basis primarily is aerosol scattering behavior while it ignores aerosol absorption and emission contributions in the infrared. Effects such as aerosol absorption and probable luminescence must be understood before atmospheric modeling, particularly in and near the 8-13 micrometer atmospheric window through which most of the earths radiative transfer takes place, can be completed. Many unexplained atmospheric phenomena should become understandable through precise modeling.
