The transmissivity of the lower atmosphere for thermal radiation from an isotropic source to a flat receiver was obtained as a function of the distance of the receiver from the source and various meteorological conditions. The results of this investigation are based on data taken over ranges from 0.2 to 25 km with values of sigma R between 0.02 and 40.
