Abstract

Infrared solar spectrum observations taken on 12 January 1955, in Denver, Colorado, with a double-pass NaCl prism have been analyzed for transmission coefficients for the “selective” absorption and for the “continuum” extinction. The analysis was performed over the range 1.0–12.5 μ. The good ness of fit for the average transmission for a random band model and for a regular band model is given for each of 203 data points distributed throughout the spectrum.
