Paper Abstract

TAFTS is an airborne far-infra-red Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS) currently under construction. It is designed to make spectroscopic measurements of high radiometric accuracy in the upper troposphere/lower stratosphere in the band 12 micrometer to 120 micrometer (800 cm-1 to 80 cm-1). Its scientific mission is the direct observation of the radiative properties of upper troposphere humidity (UTH) and cirrus clouds, both of which have been shown by modeling studies to have great significance in the global radiation budget. Details of the instrument's design are presented.
