Paper Abstract

Atmospheric emission measured at 2.7 µm by the SPIRE earth limb rocket experiment under sunlit conditions has not been fully understood to date. While initial analysis showed this emission to be different from the hydroxyl spectra observed on the night side during the same experiment, the authors were only able to speculate on the processes responsible. In this paper, we develop a model of fluorescent CO2 hot band emission to explain approximately 40% of the measured SPIRE data. In addition, we include the results of two other models to show the contributions required from CO2 and H20 resonant fluorescence.
