Abstract : This report describes data processing programs which have been developed to edit, process, and analyze the digital raw data tapes produced at the U.S. Air Force Project OPAQUE Field Station in Meppen, Federal Republic of Germany. This raw data is produced by continuous measurements of atmospheric optical properties in the visible and infrared regions over the period beginning in December, 1976 through to the present. The report described the format of the raw data tapes and the programs and processing sequences used to generate appropriate files for producing time plots, histograms and tables. These files are available for subsequent repacking into the OPAQUE data bank format. (Author)
