Nonlinear nonstationary absorption of infrared laser radiation within vibrational bands of molecules with dense quasirandom rotational structure, which is typical of a number of atmospheric components, is considered. An analytic expression for the probability of incoherent photoexcitation of a vibrational transition is obtained. The conditions for nonstationary rotational population effects to be strong are determined; the role of laser pulse shape and duration is analyzed. These effects are estimated for O3 molecules under laboratory and atmospheric conditions.
