Abstract : This report describes progress on the various tasks which comprise the research in laser atmospheric propagation. This work includes 1. a review of work done on the study of the infrared water vapor continuum, 2. the design of low stain-less steel, temperature controlled absorption cells with White-type optics, 3. design of a non-resonant, differential spectrophone and data recorded on this instrument, 4. design of a stainless steel resonant spectrophone, 5. and other topics.
