  • Ray, 309, a key element should be mentioned for people who think RodB is on to something: in thermalisation of radiation (and hence a body being a black body) is the extreme number of collisions, absorbtions and reemissions.

    RealClimate

  • But you can't * get* perfect blackbody radiation from a cavity, since you still have to let the photons out at some point and that means there's a chance that a photon will escape before thermalisation has happened.

  • This is how thermalisation happens even in the absence of significant inelastic collision events.
