There are topics on how water vapour absorbs radiation ("How does carbon dioxide or water vapour absorb thermal infra red radiation from the sun?"), but what I am looking for is can water vapour also emits radiation in the following proces?
When water vapourize for example from the ocean, it contains latent heat. When water vapour rises into the atmosphere it can absorb radiation.
Will / can water vapour also emit heat in the form of radiation before it condenses into the liquid form? I know it will transmit radiation in the phase change, but I am only looking in the phase before the phase change.
