Abstract:

An analysis was made of some new data on absorption in the 15 micron CO2 band, and corrected values of atmospheric transmission in this region were obtained. An analysis of the window region was also made. The problem of transforming the radiation measured in a small solid angle near the vertical to hemispherical radiation was considered. Examples of window maps with superimposed cloud analyses from TIROS I photographs are presented. A map of the total outgoing radiation between 4 and 40 microns along the vertical over the United States from the Rockies to the Atlantic is shown. Author
