Paper Abstract

A study is made of the modeling of atmospheric resonant transmission in the millimeter wave region. The model consists of an exponential function whose argument is defined as the product of a spectral parameter, and the pressure, the temperature and the absorber amount to some powers. All the model functional parameters were determined through least-squares analysis of line-by-line data, computed with the use of the Van Vleck-Weisskopf line shape, at conditions typical of the lower S km of the atmosphere. The development was extended at 1 GHz intervals throughout the entire millimeter wave region (30 through 300 GHz). Individual models were developed for water vapor and oxygen, with a resulting reproducibility of 0.08 and 0.66%, respectively.
