Abstract:

Requirements for a spectral radiometer to measure the earth limb in the long-wavelength infrared have been established. Temporal and spatial sampling requirements for an experimental program to define the variation in the limb radiance have been investigated. An experimental program using probes has been designed to meet these requirements. The conceptual design of a long-wavelength infrared spectral radiometer is included in the experiment design.
