Paper Abstract

The temporal and spatial dependence of the transmission of radiation in the near ultraviolet (3000-4000Å) is investigated. Using the LOWTRAN 6 computer code, the transmittance of radiation from several natural and man-made sources through the earth's atmosphere is calculated and compared to observation. Sources are chosen which represent a wide variety of slant paths to space. As a result, transmission of ultraviolet radiation from points near the horizon may be compared to that from sources at smaller zenith angles.
