Spectral resolution was 0.01 $\mu$m. A filter radiometer measured the sun continuously in the 11 $\mu m$ window. Combining the radiometer output with a spectral scan of a hot laboratory source and published solar spectral radiances provides a 100\% level, which is tested against the spectrometer data in the wings of the band at the higher altitudes. Spectral transmittance versus pressure for the solar zenith angle during the ascent will be used as a standard for the general computation of atmospheric transmittances to be used with satellite data for indirect sounding of atmospheric temperature. en_US dc.format.extent 106233 bytes dc.format.mimetype image/jpeg dc.language.iso English en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title MEASUREMENT TO 40 km OF ATMOSPHERIC TRANSMITTANCES IN THE 15 $\mu m$ BAND OF CARBON DIOXIDE en_US dc.type article en_US
