Abstract:

The separation of line and continuum emission in the 8 - 26 micron sky emission spectrum and its calculation by means of radiation diagrams is discussed for narrow spectral intervals containing no, one, or two water vapor rotational lines. Continuum absorption coefficients and the intergrated absorptions of four lines are determined by comparison of calculated and measured radiance values. A radiation diagram for the 8.75 - 12.25 micron window region is presented and compared with measurements. Author
