NO2, is the lesser of the two emitted NOx gases from high temperature combustion in air. It is an important species in the atmosphere. Since it absorbs in the visible wavelength region--creating the Brown Cloud see over Denver, LA, Mexico City, Beijing, etc.--and can be photolyzed and yield oxygen atoms that can react with molecular oxygen to create ozone, NO2 and the NO/NO2 ratio is important in tropospheric chemistry.
