Abstract:

The absorption of 24 DF laser wavelengths ranging from 3.6128 micrometers to 4.0464 micrometers was measured for CH4, N2O, CO2, and HDO vapor. Total absorption was calculated for the lines for each of these absorbing gases and for the N2 and H2O continua independently and collectively for two representative transmission paths midlatitude summer model. A comparison of the measured absorption coefficients was made with calculated values of McClatchey and Selby for 17 lines. Modified author abstract
