Abstract : Information about sky radiation and the optical property of the Greenland atmosphere was gathered. In order to investigate the strati fication of atmospheric haze in the higher atmosphere, some twilight measurements were made. Spatial distribution of intensity and the degree of polarization in various narrow spectral ranges and twilight intensity in various narrow sctral ranges was measured near Camp Century in North Greenland. The observations were made at a distance of 850 meters east of Camp Century, which is situated 77 degrees 11 minutes North and 60 degrees 09 minutes West, about 2000 meters above sea level. (Author)
