Paper Abstract

Progress made in the last ten years in understanding the daytime earthlimb emission around 2.7 microns is reviewed. It is pointed that the solar pumped emission from the earth's atmosphere consists of radiation primarily from carbon dioxide and from water vapor. Radiation from CO2 was the subject of a thorough investigation (Sharma and Wintersteiner, 1985). The radiation from water vapor is studied using the newly developed Strategic High-Altitude Radiance Code, and the results are compared with the SPectral Infrared Rocket Experiment. The next few years should see dramatic progress in the backgrounds models because of the global measurement made by the CIRRIS 1A.
