Paper Abstract

This paper describes developed computer code AIRA used to calculate the atmospheric transmittance with a low and medium spectral resolution in the visible and IR. Three basic factors affecting the radiation attenuation (molecular absorption, aerosol extinction, molecular scattering) are included. AIRA calculates molecular absorption, using a band model whose parameters are derived from molecular absorption parameters database. AIRA is used both as a traditional band model and a single-line model. The latter was formerly regarded only as a theoretical treatment. However, it provides a satisfactory agreement with experiments for some H2O and CO2 bands.
