Abstract:

A Fortran computer program LOWTERM is described for calculating nuclear thermal fluence incident upon a target area. Atmospheric transmissivity factors in the spectral region 0.25 to 28.5 microns are determined through use of the LOWTRAN5 computer code. The program provides a choice of six model atmospheres covering seasonal and latitudinal variations from sea level to 100 km, eight haze models, and accounts for molecular absorption, molecular scattering, and aerosol extinction. Atmospheric refraction, earth curvature effects, thermal scattering, and thermal ground reflection contributions are included. Author
