Abstract : Tables are given for the transmittance over slant paths from initial altitudes of 15, 25, 30, and 50 km to the outer limit of the atmosphere. Values are given for all angles from vertical to horizontal in 5 degree steps. Results are presented for CO2 from 500 to 10,000/cm and for H2O from 1000 to 10,000/cm for both a dry stratosphere (uniform mixing ratio) and a wet stratosphere (mixing ratio increasing with height). The calculations are based on previously published transmittance tables for homogeneous paths and theoretical expressions for obtaining slant path transmittances from such results. (Author)
