Abstract

The method of first-order Taylor expansion was used to study the temperature effect on the transmission function for several narrow spectral intervals in the 15-μm CO2 absorption region with direct application to the problem of thermal remote sounding. Numerical analysis indicates that the computed transmittances are in good agreement with those obtained by line-by-line calculation, especially for spectral intervals with relatively strong temperature dependence.
