Paper Abstract

Balloon-borne measurements were made using the Stratospheric Cryogenic Interferometer Balloon Experiment (SCRIBE) interferometer from Holloman AFB on October 1983 and July 1984. The instrument obtained 0.06cm-1 resolution data with good S/N in the spectral region of 600 to 1400cm-1 with an interferometer scan time of 25 seconds. Representative spectra will be shown which demonstrate the capability of the SCRIBE interfero-meter for atmospheric emission measurements. The SNR achieved in the 750 to 1000cm-1 region was high permitting the measurement of emission gases with stratospheric concentrations of the order of PPB to a resolution of 0.06cm-1. Emission spectra of trace gas species easily identified will be presented; these include HNO3, CF1C13 (F11), FC2C12 (F12).
