Paper Abstract

A specialized transmissometer has been installed at a location exposed to open ocean near Perth, Western Australia. The pathlength is 3 km and is 1.5 m above high water. The objective is to conduct atmospheric transmission measurements within the marine surface layer in the 3 - 5 and 8 - 12 micrometer transmission windows to quantify the degradation in transmission as a function of sea and meteorological conditions. A further experiment is being undertaken to examine the statistical properties of rapid fluctuations in the intensity of the transmitted beams.
