Vertical profiles of excitation temperatures of the nine transitions calculated for the atmospheric model corresponding to SSL = 10°. The labels displayed in the upper right corner denote the frequency for the given transition in GHz. The 556.9 GHz is typically one of the most important transitions for cometary and planetary contexts discussed in this text. The kinetic temperature profile is also shown as dash-dotted line.
