Abstract : The data collected by the SCRIBE October 1981 flight were analyzed. The flight history and the data obtained, centered at the 15 microns CO2 band, are summarized in this report. The down-looking spectra obtained with 0.2 cm to the minus one resolution produced no unusual features, while the horizontal-looking spectra obtained with the same resolution figure yielded remarkable findings, a continuum background feature superimposed with the molecular feature and a large variation in the radiance level at 27000 approx. 28000 m altitude for both the molecular and the continuum feature.
