Paper Abstract

A model is presented that describes the behaviour of the sea as an IR-background. The model is based on the Cox-Munk wave slope statistic and the LOWTRAN 6 radiation model. It addresses atmospheric refraction, aerosol absorption and scattering, molecular scattering, emission and absorption. Comparisons with measurements of a calibrated thermal imaging system show good agreements.
