INVESTIGATION OF THE INFRARED EMISSION SPECTRUM OF THE ATMOSPHERE AND EARTH.
Final rept. p2,
MUNICH UNIV (WEST GERMANY) METEOROLOGISCHES INSTITUT
Pagination or Media Count:
The emission of the clear sky spectrum has been measured from 7.5 micron to 26 micron at different measuring sites, and under different meteorological conditions. The spectral resolution was approximately 2cm. From these measurements continuum absorption coefficients have been derived for window regions in the water vapor spectrum. The emission of single lines and groups of lines which could be resolved from adjacent lines has been compared with calculated emissivities based upon theoretical line parameters. From this comparison empirical values of the product line intensity times half width could be deduced.
