  • INTRODUCTION The Earth's atmosphere is largely composed of the diatomic molecules, dinitrogen, N 2 , and dioxygen, O 2 ; 78.08% and 20.93% by volume respectively. They are radiatively inactive as is explained below. The remaining 0.97% is made up from argon (0.93%), carbon dioxide, (CO 2 0.037%), methane, (CH 4 0.00017%), dinitrogen monoxide, (N 2 O 0.000032%) and even smaller amounts of carbon monoxide, ozone, (O 3) and the Group 18 inert gases, neon, helium, krypton and xenon. There are also… CONTINUE READING
