Paper Abstract

The effects of molecular absorption, molecular line shape, continuum absorption, and aerosol extinction on laser radiation propagating through the earth's atmosphere will be presented. Model predictions of atmospheric attenuation of selected laser frequencies will be shown as a function of atmospheric conditions and slant path. The spectral region from visible to mm waves will be considered.
