Short Method for Determination of Atmospheric Transmission Coefficients

  • G. A. Kharitonova


Most work in atmospheric optics requires knowledge of the transmission coefficients of the atmosphere in one or another spectral region. Determination of these coefficients by the well-known “long” method of Bouguer entails rather large expenditures of time. Moreover, this method gives accurate values only for an optically stable atmosphere. There is therefore a need for “short” methods.
