Abstract:

Mathematical expressions are developed which permit calculations of the meteorological sensitivity of Lowtran 3B, a computer code which can be used to calculate the transmittance of the atmosphere from the ultraviolet to the middle infrared portion of the spectrum. Mathematical relationships are developed which relate the water vapor line, uniformly mixed gases and ozone transmissions directly to the meteorological observables. These relationships are then used in conjunction with the existing expressions for the other atmospheric constituents to determine the meteorological sensitivity of this model. Author
