Paper Abstract

The basic processes leading to the absorption, emission, and scattering of infrared radiation in the atmosphere below 70 km are briefly reviewed. The present ability to predict these effects is demonstrated by examples of computed infrared transmittance spectra obtained with low-resolution band model techniques and with high-resolution monochromatic techniques. Several examples are included of the experimental application of these techniques to the derivation of atmospheric composition and meteorological data from infrared observations.
