Paper Abstract

Relative transmission of radiation P in the minimum of the 2724-cm1 HDO band has been analyzed in two cases: a) for solar radiation and different air masses m (slant paths); b) globar as the artificial source of radiation in the ground air layer (horizontal paths with a length of 1.4 km). A technique for estimation of precipitated water wz (cm) in the vertical atmospheric column with accuracy of about 10 percent has been suggested. Calibration curve P (sz x m) calculated from the dependence of P on wo - precipitated water of the ground air layer - is used.
