Note that, for a temperature of 300 K, 99% of the radiation energy of a perfect black body is concentrated in the 3-80 ~m range with a maximum around 10 ~m, whereas for a temperature of 200 K 99% of the energy is between 4 and 120 ~m with a maximum around 15 ~m. 4% of the terrestrial radiation is at wavelengths A < 5 ~m. In the atmosphere the main absorbers of short-wave radiation are water vapor and ozone (as well as oxygen), and to a slight degree CO 2 , aerosol, and 33 RADIATION FACTORS cloud particles.

A somewhat less intense component of the anomalies has during a given season the same sign over the entire Earth, while within a given hemisphere it changes sign from the winter half year to the summer half year (asymmetry of the left and right halves of the graphs) and regions of the same sign cover long time intervals, of the order of 60,000 to 150,000 years.

In addition to the seasonal fluctuations, Fig. 2 reveals the trend of the CO 2 concentration to increase through the years, from 315 ppm in 1958 to 333 ppm in 1976, that is, a rise of 18 ppm in 18 years. This increase slowed down somewhat from 1963 to 1967, speeded up from 1968 to 1973, and then slowed down again. A similar pattern was observed at the South Pole, where the CO 2 concentration was slightly lower, the increase being from 314 ppm in 1958 to 331 ppm in 1976.
