Paper Abstract

Spectral earthlimb emission data were obtained 28 September 1977 in the DNA sponsored Spectral Infrared Rocket Experiment (SPIRE) that was conducted by Air Force Geophysics Laboratory (AFGL) personnel, assisted by Utah State University (USU) personnel. Spectral radiance as a function of tangent altitude was obtained for four sunlit and eight dark data scans. This paper presents a detailed analysis of the non-LTE emission mechanisms, and the radiative transfer formulation, that is required to optimally model the 4.3- μm SPIRE data.
