One Tenth Bar, Short Waves, and Solar Spectral Change

A review of a paper that finds a 1/10 bar ( 1/10 atmospheric pressure) common location of a tropopause on many planets with divergent atmospheres. Another paper says this can be applied to all sorts of planets, not just in our solar system, and also finds that the Stellar Spectrum matters. As our Solar Spectrum just shifted, I speculate that matters too, and that this 0.1 bar formula constrains our temperatures also. Continue reading
