Abstract

Spectrographic observations of radiation from the earth and its atmosphere have been made by an interferometer from an Air Force satellite. Spectra were obtained in the infrared region between 1.8 μ and 15 μ over a period of seven days. Small parts of these data have been reduced and some of the reduced data have been compared to “theoretical” spectra computed from the meteorological conditions that prevailed during the time of the orbits. This paper presents a representative sample of the results obtained thus far.
