For the purposes of studying radiative properties of the atmospheres of the other planets, Venus and Mars for example, where the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere may be greater than in the earth’s by several orders of magnitude, these bands become important (Jastrow and Rasool, 1963). Therefore, in the absence of generally accepted values of the intensities of 9.4 p and 10.4 p bands, they have attempted to estimate them independently.
