Abstract

The method of molecular dynamics is used to investigate the effect of absorption of carbon and nitrogen monoxides on the spectral characteristics of a disperse aqueous system. The absorption of CO molecules causes the reduction of the real and imaginary parts of permittivity, and the absorption of NO molecules results in smoothing out of the frequency dependence of these characteristics, which corresponds to that of a system of clusters of pure water. The integral absorptance and reflectance of IR radiation decrease after the attachment of CO molecules to water clusters and undergo insignificant changes as a result of absorption of NO molecules. An increase is observed in the integral power of emission of infrared radiation by disperse aqueous systems which absorbed CO or NO molecules. The clustering of water vapor causes an abrupt reduction of the number of scattering centers and the anti-greenhouse effect.
