Paper Abstract

By means of automatic multichannel balloon-borne spectrometers the spectra of solar radiation have been measured at altitudes up to 30-32 km in the range of 0.4 to 12.0μm under different spectral resolutions. On the basis of the experimental data obtained using the procedure elaborated by the authors the profiles of ozone concentrations in atmosphere at altitudes of 15-25 km have been defined, as well as the concentrations of water vapour and methane at altitudes up to 30 km. Vertical and spectral dependencies are evaluated for total and aerosol attenuation of radiation within the range of 0.4 to 12.0μm at altitudes up to 30 km. The origin of the transparence properties of atmosphere is discussed.
