"Cooling due to infrared radiation near temperature inversions is investigated. Temperature inversions tend to hold pollution below the inversion level. The pollution itself may contribute to the stability of the inversion by selectively cooling certain portions of the atmosphere. A method is developed for evaluating infrared cooling rates at discreet points in the atmosphere. Several sample calculations are given to demonstrate the effects of variations of absorber concentration and lapse rate"--Abstract, page i.
