Paper Abstract

A comparative transmissometer has been developed for evaluating the simultaneous transmission characteristics for near ocean surface transmissions in the 3 to 5 and 8 to 12 micrometers transmission bands. This transmissometer is a special purpose instrument designed for simultaneously measuring the radio of the 3 to 5 and 8 to 12 micrometers transmission bands. The transmissometer has been operated over the bay of San Diego, CA. to determine the propagation characteristics for near ocean propagation paths. Observed propagation characteristics for both the 3 to 5 and 8 to 12 micrometers bands are compared and discussed as a function of existing sea states and meteorological conditions.
