Abstract : From June 6 thru June 21, 1961, measurements of the radiation distribution and the degree of polarization in various narrow spectral ranges and over various segments of the sky were made near Camp Century in North Greenland. The photometer used measured sky radiation and polarization in the wave length range from 0.4 to 0.85 mu. (Author)
