Abstract : The spectrally integrated outgoing intensities t the top of the atmosphere and the distributions of the atmospheric contribuions to these intensities were calculated for a seleted four-day period at Omaha, Nebraska. The calculations were made for two spectrl intervals corresponding to the approximate bandwidths of Channels 1 (6.0-6.5 microns) and 2 (8-12 microns) of the Tiros II radiometer. he methods of calculation are fully described. The results are discused and presented in the form of four-day time sections. (Author)
