Using the radiative transfer equations in the form given by Elsasser, Ru,T tables needed to determine the atmospheric radiative flux in the 6.3 to 8.2 micron interval were computed. Values of constants, etc., used by Elsasser 1960 were used. Flux computations were made by a numerical integration of Ru,T using the moisture and temperature distribution given by the radiosonde sounding of 29 April 1959 at Holloman Air Force Base, New Mexico. Comparisons were made with balloon measurements made by Strong at the same time and in the same spectrum interval. The computed net flux was found to agree with the measured flux within reasonable limits.
