Paper Abstract

The LOWTRAN-7 computer code for calculating the propagation of IR radiation through the atmosphere is evaluated in the 8-12 microns wavelength region. Good agreement was found between calculated and measured radiances, except for the LOWTRAN 7 single scattering mode that is based on a conservative scattering approach which results in too high sky radiances.
