Paper Abstract

During the past several years the Optical Radiation Branch of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has conducted extensive field experiments designed to validate high resolution atmospheric transmission codes for near-and mid-infrared wavelengths. The combined use of laser extinction data with Fourier transform spectrometer measurements over long atmospheric paths has produced several examples of high-quality, precisely calibrated transmission spectra. Instrumentation and procedures used in these experiments will be described and selected measurement results will be presented. Application of this information to current infrared atmospheric transmission problems will be discussed together with comparisons of the experimental data to high-resolution computer code calculations.
