Susskind, J., and J.E. Searl, 1978: Synthetic atmospheric transmittance spectra near 15 and 4.3µm. J. Quant. Spectrosc. Radiat. Transfer, 19, 195-215, doi:10.1016/0022-4073(78)90078-X.

Synthetic monochromatic atmospheric transmittance spectra are presented for infrared intervals in the vicinity of the 15 and 4.3µm CO2 bands. The intervals are nominally 20 cm-1 in width, and the spectra partition the intervals [560, 780] cm-1 and [2180, 2400] cm-1, respectively. The spectra are for a vertical atmospheric path. A given spectrum is presented at that pressure for which the mean weighting function (-d Tau(P)/d ln P) is a maximum. In order to indicate the molecular origin of the features in a given spectrum, separate spectra are also presented for those species which make center line contributions to the absorption over the interval. The transmittance model for the calculations is described. In addition to the representation of spectral features for intervals which comprise these two CO2 bands, the spectra afford a utility in the design of high precision satellite temperature radiometers.
