In 1977 the Infrared Mobile Optical Radiation Laboratory IMORL facility of NRLs Optical Sciences Division conducted in-situ field experiments which precisely measured infrared transmittance along a 5-km coastal path at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida. Fourier-transform spectroscopy FTS instrumentation capable of resolving the vibration-rotation absorption- line structure of atmospheric gases was used to record the infrared absorption of the experimental path during a variety of meteorological conditions. Related laser-extinction measurements made along the same path provided absolute- transmission normalizations for the FTS spectra. Fifteen of these normalized spectra and a tabulation of associated meteorological measurements have been assembled on digital magnetic tape. The resulting 1977 NRL-IMORL Data Base provides a unique compendium of spectral information about the coastal atmosphere and its infrared properties. Author
