Abstract

A survey has been made of the available solar spectra for all altitudes, and selected data reduced to absolute intensity form with uniform resolution. The work covers the spectral region from 3.5 μ to 5.5 μ, and values of apparent spectral brightness temperature for the sun in this band are also given.
