Abstract

A helium-cooled IR spectrometer with a diffraction-limited telescope was launched on 23 Sept. 1983 from Aire-sur-l'Adour (France) as part of the MAP/Globus 1983 campaign. The float altitude of the balloon was 38 km. Limb scan measurements of atmospheric emissions were taken in the 5.5–19-μm wavelength region. The measurements were performed ∼1 h before sunrise. From several spectral features volume mixing ratios of NO2, H2O, CH4, HNO3, O3, and N2O were derived.
