Radiometric Surface Temperature Measurements and Fluctuations in Sky Radiant Emittance in the 600 to 1300 cm−1 Waveband1

  2. C. H. M. van Bavel3



Observations of sky radiant emittance in the 600 to 1300 cm−1 (7.5-16µ) waveband were made near Phoenix, Ariz., in the spring of 1966 in connection with radiometric measurement of soil surface temperatures. A marked diurnal fluctuation was found which appeared to be correlated with high ozone concentrations near the ground, in turn caused by local air pollution.
