Molecular pairs in the atmosphere, the carriers of continuum-like absorption Andrei A. Vigasin General Physics & Atmospheric Physics Institutes, Russian Academy of Sciences, Moscow CAVIAR meeting, London, 2008

Water vapor continuum absorption

, cm -1

4
Water vapor continuum absorption (after Baranov, 2008) Near surface downwelling radiation flux (for the Standard Tropical Atmospheric profile) within the wavelength range from 2000 to 3200 cm -1 is ~1.5 times in excess of that calculated using the MTCKD-2.1 continuum model [ estimated by B. Fomin, 2008 ].

5
To avoid continuous controversy it looks rational to start AB OVO Monomer far wings or water dimers? The war between the two countries is over the BigEnded and the LittleEnded controversy which is a debate over which end an egg should be cracked... after Jonathan Swift, Gulliver's Travels

6
One has to define without ambiguity what must be called true dimers or colliding pairs and how to distinguish among them Partitioning of pair states as a function of temperature Classical trajectory analysis in the phase space Collision-induced intensity and its T-dependence Temperature effect on the water vapor continuum

7
The real gas virial equation of state

8
Interaction induced correction to unimolecular absorption

9
Linear term vanishes in case of dipole forbidden transitions (highly symmetrical molecules such as N 2, O 2, CO 2 etc.). Quadratic term (binary absorption coefficient) implies the aggregate effect of the totality of pair states in a gas, no matter be it true dimer, quasibound, or free state. To reveal partial effect of a selected group of pair states (e.g. dimer or whatever) one has to learn how to partition the phase space of two interacting species.

The fraction of true bound or quasibound pair states in the water vapor

32
This ratio of partition functions was calculated previously after pair states partitioning in the phase space. Here K p bound (T) stands for the true bound dimers equilibrium constant; True dimer absorption cross-section bound ( ) is evaluated from anharmonic variational calculations; Metastable dimer cross-section metastable ( ) can be taken as doubled and broadened monomer cross-section: 2 monomer ( ); Binary absorption coefficient in a mixture of true bound and metastable dimers

38
Gibbs free energy of dimerization

39
1.The involvement of different types of pair states in the water vapor continuum absorption is essentially subject to temperature. 2.In the vicinity of room temperature these are true bound and metastable dimer states which are likely to dominate the continuum. 3.To all appearance there is no room to speculations about so- called collision-induced nature of the atmospheric continuum implying that this phenomenon might be determined by free collisional pair states. Monomer far wings or water dimers?

40
Pair states in the atmosphere realize in terms of true bound, metastable, and free states Close collisions may give rise to increase in continuum absorption at elevated temperature Involvement of the metastable states is largely responsible for the observed spectral variations in the temperature dependence of the water vapor continuum absorption Conclusions
