Abstract : Several concepts for indirect measurement of atmospheric properties were uncovered. Two of these possess potential as the bases of true surveillance techniques and two others provide path-integrated measures of pertinent parameters. The 4 concepts discussed are: (1) acoustic sounding, (2) interaction of acoustic and electromagnetic energy, (3) gas emission thermometry,AND (4) optical lapse rate observations. (Author)
