upper and lower Atmosphere Relevance for Atmospheric Chemistry AB hp gtAB gt AB is an exited often unstable state of molecule AB for an electronic transition due to absorption of UV vis light AB has a different electron configuration than AB for an infrared absorption AB rovibrates stronger than AB are processes of the following relative importance in the atmosphere 1 thermal nonradiative decay eg greenhouse heating 2 photolysis eg oxygen or ozone in stratosphere 3 fluorescence eg NO in thermosphere 4 phosphorescence negligible 5 others eg chemical reaction negligible VB 667 cm 1 VAS 2349 cm1 Stretching modes Bending modes Figure 74 Representation of the two stretching modes and the two bending modes of 002 For the stretching modes we indicated three different positions The bending modes correspond to two orthogonal planes which are physically equivalent and therefore have the same frequency from Booker and van Grondelle Environmental Physics Homework tasks Why does thermal decay usually dominate over mechanisms of excess energy loss How could fluorescence be boosted think about both the molecule itself and its environment If so where do you think nitrogen N2 is photolyzed Can you explain why certain transitions of the oxygen molecule have higher probability of success stronger absorption lines than others is your head spinning yet 002 is a strong CO is a weak IR absorber
