Abstract:

Measurements have been made of solar spectra from the International Scientific Station of the Jungfraujoch and supplements have been added to the Photometric Atlas of the Solar Spectrum from 3000-10,000 Angstroms. The spectral domain covered by the Atlas now extends from 4,006-7,994Angstroms. In addition to the extension of the solar atlas, measurements made near 2.5 and 3.3 micrometers have been used for deducing trace atmospheric species such as hydrofluoric and hydrochloric acid. A fourier transform spectrometer has been used to record high accuracy solar spectra in the atmospheric windows between 1.1 and 2.5 micrometers. Stratospheric balloon instrumentation has been flown on two occasions to obtain solar spectra in selected intervals between 1.8 and 8.1 micrometers. The object here is to measure trace atmospheric species in spectral regions of significant atmospheric absorption by other species. Author
