Calibration of infrared instruments for the remote sounding of atmospheric temperature

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

For ir radiometers making remote observations of atmospheric temperature structure, an absolute accuracy of ~½% in radiance measurement is required and a relative accuracy between measurements of ~0.1%. Such accuracies can be achieved. The present theoretical models of the 15-μm carbon-dioxide band are inadequate for interpretation of remote sounding observations and careful measurements of atmospheric transmission in this region are required.
