Balloon-borne stratospheric far-IR spectral absorption measurements: the design of a solar telescope and high-resolution Michelson interferometer combination

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The design, construction, and performance of a combined solar telescope and Michelson interferometer for balloon-borne stratospheric far-IR absorption studies is discussed in terms of the relevant parameters and precautions necessary to obtain high resolution radiometrically calibrated spectra of the stratosphere between 20 and 100 cm−1. Preliminary data are presented to indicate that the system performed as designed and provided constituent concentration values for H2O and O3 from measurements of strong absorption lines in this spectrum.
