Spectrophotometric Studies of Atmospheric Transmittance and Stability

  • B. T. Tashenov


Information on the optical stability of the atmosphere is necessary for solving a wide variety of problems in atmospheric optics, particularly in the study of spectral transmittance. A number of methods for monitoring stability have been developed by V. G. Fesenkov and E. V. Pyaskovskaya-Fesenkova [1, 2]. Experimentally, the methods have mainly been tested in comparatively broad, filtered spectral regions. Little attention has been devoted to the unstable state, to the relationships and factors governing optical perturbations in the various spectral regions.
