Profiles of the effective absorption coefficient κ1 for CO2, as predicted by Eq. (27) (red) as well as diagnosed from RFM (black) by linearly averaging over those that also contribute to in Eq. (20). The good agreement confirms the 1/p scaling for κ1, which underlies the stratospheric enhancement of (see Fig. 6).
