Paper Abstract

For many years the strong contrast between radiation received from the edge of the atmosphere and from space has been used to orient spacecraft near the earth. Recently, observations and calculations of outgoing radiation have shown sufficient agreement to give confidence that such measurements could be inverted to give information on the state and composition of the atmosphere. (Much of this work is cited in Ref. 1.)
