Abstract

Atmospheric temperature profiles, obtained from spectral radiances of the earth between 2160 and 2360 cm−1 measured by a balloonborne, multi-detector, grating spectrometer at 3.5 mb during a 6-hr flight, are described. Representative profiles obtained both before and after sunrise and for clear and cloudy skies show that atmospheric temperatures accurate to ∼2K can be inferred. The variations of surface temperature during the flight are discussed.
