Paper Abstract

Infrared radiation leaving the earth's atmosphere (Infrared airglow) is briefly described. The concept of non-local thermodynamic equilibrium is introduced and the sources of infrared airglow are briefly discussed. Airglow originating from various vibration-rotation bands of CO2 is discussed to serve as an example for the concepts introduced.
