Augmenting Infrared Blackbody Radiation Theory with Raman Spectrometry

This diagram shows the quantum-predicted spectra of the infrared atmosphere. It distinguishes between, what I term, the thermo-transductive (IR) and the Raman active spectra. It also shows the 19th-century derived 'blackbody' curve for the Sun (b) and the Earth (c). The curve 'a' is the 20-century correction curve derived by Raman spectroscopy. This curve is my work and I aim to change radiation and greenhouse theory with it. Raman spectrometers through the Boltzmann constant measure the temperature of the shown molecules. All matter radiates. And that includes the gases of the atmosphere. In my two papers(  Quantum Mechanics and Raman Spectroscopy Refute Greenhouse Theory  and  The Greenhouse Gases and Infrared Radiation Misconceived by Thermoelectric Transducers  ) I expose and address this discrepancy. I call it a systematic error that has played itself out over the last 160 years; Raman spectroscopy had solved it. Augmenting Infrared Blackbody Radiation Curves wit
