Abstract : The work involves an experimental investigation of the absorption of infrared radiation by atmospheric gases, and a study of the emission by H2O and CO2 at temperatures as high as 2000K. Several hundred absorption spectra of H2O and CO2 samples near room temperature were obtained in the 0.7 to 5.5 micron region. The samples varied in path length from 1 cm to 933 meters and pressures ranged from approximately 5 microns Hg to 15 atmospheres. Strengths of many of the bands were determined and the widths of many of the individual lines were calculated. Abstracts of the technical reports and papers are presented. (Author)
