dc.description.abstractThe water-vapor continuum plays an important role in the radiation balance in the Earth's atmosphere. While this absorption has been known for a long time, the physical mechanism responsible is still an open problem. We have recently calculated theoretically both the magnitude and temperature dependence for the three mechanism that have been suggested: the far-wings of allowed lines, collision-induced absorption, and water dimers, 124313 (2008).}$^,$. All three mechanisms depend quadratically on the number density of H$_2$O for the self-continuum, and on the product of the densities for the foreign-continuum. However, these three mechanisms have quite differences on the temperature as we will discuss. This analysis may provide us with a method to assess their relative importance in ambient atmospheric measurements.en_US
