Paper Abstract

Formation of molecular water complexes that presumably affect the continuum water vapor absorption under nearatmospheric conditions is discussed within a chemical kinetics approach. Small sets of reactions responsible for a homogeneous nucleation of complexes comprised of simple structural units (water monomers) are considered. Sets with complexes containing no more than 5 monomers are examined. Steady states are found for the sets of model equations used, and the stability properties and time dependent concentrations of molecular complexes near the physical steady state are defined. The special features inherent in the behavior of the concentrations depending on the initial conditions and fraction of a foreign gas are revealed.
