Abstract : The vertical distribution of sky radiation in the wavelength region 0.4-2.2 microns is given for two flights made in June 1965. The measurements were made from a helicopter with an interference filter radiometer in the suns almucantar. Extinction coefficients for aerosol scattering are deduced from the radiance data.
