Abstract

Based on the high-resolution data on the absorption lines of gases from the HITRAN open inter-national database in conjunction with inverse Fourier transform, the autocorrelation function of the total dipole moment of the molecules of the main greenhouse gases, such as H2O, CO2, O3, N2O, and CH4, are determined. The spectral absorption coefficient and spectral radiance of these gases in the investigated IR region is calculated. An analysis of the emissivity of each of the gases is performed. An efficiency criterion of IR absorption and emission is introduced, according to which the studies gases are ranked.
