Measuring the effective radiating temperature of the ozonosphere
The experiment described this month represents a very clever application of radiation exchange. The center of the ozonosphere lies about 15 miles above the surface of the earth. In this discussion, we are not going into the photochemical reactions taking place in the ozonosphere, but instead shall focus on measuring its effective radiating temperature.
