I'm a Post-Doctoral Fellow in atmospheric remote sensing at the University of Toronto in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. I first came to Stack Exchange for practical reasons: Tex.SE has been of major help when I wrote my licentiate (midterm) thesis. Since then, I have discovered the joy of many websites. As my network profile will show, I'm interested in travel, outdoor, scientific skepticism, and as I work in academia, also in academia and LaTeX.

comment What is the equation for plotting a graph for absorption in air as a function of wavelength(7.5micrometer-13micrometer)?
What makes you think there is an equation?

comment Why did nuclear testing not result in nuclear winter?
You've got your spheres wrong. Anything in the troposphere gets rained out quickly and problems arise when aerosols get past the troposphere reaching the stratosphere. The stratopause, separating the stratosphere from the mesosphere, is not relevant in this context.

comment What is a 'moist greenhouse effect'?
Funny how the moist "greenhouse effect" involves the loss of our strongest greenhouse gas.

comment Function to fit solar radiation data
This question would fit well on the new Earth Science Stack Exchange.

comment How much red, blue and green does white light have?
Suppose the light is spectrally flat — what colour would we perceive?

comment How much red, blue and green does white light have?
Note that blue light is preferentially scattered away from the sunlight reaching the Earth, so the colour of the direct sunlight we seeing from Earth is not the colour we would see from space.

comment Why is the speed of light arbitrarily the limit?
@PhilPerry I believe ThomasAhle may be referring to the retracted "faster than light" neutrinos in Italy, that turned out to be due to a faulty cable.

comment How does heat actually stay kept in the carbon molecules in the atmosphere?
@DavePhD I suspect there is an XY problem here, though. It seems Akshat supposes that the Earth is heated by the presence of CO₂ because CO₂ "keeps" heat, whereas the real question may actually be a duplicate of "how do greenhouse gases trap heat".

comment If you were able to get rid of Hydrogen from a weather balloon as it were rising and expanding would the weather balloon rise further than usual?
