Total heating due to solar energy absorption in the near-IR CO2 (NIR) bands. This illustrates the difference in heating in K day−1 when the Local Thermodynamic Equilibrium (LTE) approximation is made. This approximation breaks down at around 0.1 hPa (approx. 65 km) as can be seen. After Fomichev et al. (2004).
