Plot a single Rayleigh scattering spectral distribution.

  • CO2_concentration (ArrayLike) – \(CO_2\) concentration in parts per million (ppm).

  • temperature (ArrayLike) – Air temperature \(T[K]\) in kelvin degrees.

  • pressure (ArrayLike) – Surface pressure \(P\) of the measurement site.

  • latitude (ArrayLike) – Latitude of the site in degrees.

  • altitude (ArrayLike) – Altitude of the site in meters.

  • cmfs (MultiSpectralDistributions | str | Sequence[MultiSpectralDistributions | str]) – Standard observer colour matching functions used for computing the spectrum domain and colours. cmfs can be of any type or form supported by the colour.plotting.common.filter_cmfs() definition.

  • kwargs (Any) – {colour.plotting.artist(), colour.plotting.plot_single_sd(), colour.plotting.render()}, See the documentation of the previously listed definitions.
