Abstract

An atlas of high resolution infrared emission spectra identifies a number of gaseous atmospheric features significant to stratospheric chemistry in the 770–900- and 1100–1360-cm−1 regions at six zenith angles from 86.7 to 95.1°. A balloon-borne Michelson interferometer was flown to obtain ~0.03-cm−1 resolution spectra. Two 10-cm−1 extracts are presented here.

Portion (890–900 cm−1) of the channel 1 spectrum showing the increasing HNO3 signal with decreasing altitude. The zenith angles, from top to bottom, are 86.7, 91.2, 93.4, 94.3, 94.9, and 95.1°. The strongest features are HNO3, with weaker H2O and CO2 lines also present. Note the change of scale in the upward and 38.1-km panels with respect to that of the remaining panels.

Channel 2 features in the 1170–80-cm−1 region. O3, H2O, and N2O lines are present. As in Fig. 1, the zenith angles, from top to bottom, are 86.7, 91.2, 93.4, 94.3, 94.9, and 95.1°. The scale also changes from the upward and 38.1-km panels with respect to that of the remaining panels.
