Paper Abstract

In this work the atmospheric transmission spectra T equals f((lambda) ) were determined experimentally by the balloon experiments in the region of 8.0 - 12 micrometers with resolution about 5 cm-1. The balloon-borne spectrometers have three optical channels. Two channels are used for simultaneous registration of two solar spectra, the third one serves for the uninterrupted registration of the solar intensity during all the time of the flight in the two narrow spectral regions (0.02 micrometers ) obtained with the use of the interference filters at (lambda) equals 0.5 micrometers or (lambda) equals 0.8 micrometers . All the measurements were performed during lifting the apparatus at the positive sun heights hradii > 0 and during gliding at altitude about 30 km firstly at the positive and then at the negative solar heights.
