Abstract

An infrared multidetector spectrometer with channels in the 4.3-μm and 15-μm CO2 bands for the remote profiles in the presence of clouds is described. Results obtained from aircraft flights sensing of temperature over ocean sites under various conditions of cloudiness demonstrate the capability of the dual in July 1975 to recover surface temperatures to an accuracy of ±0.5 K in the presence of up to 90% frequency technique cloud cover.
