An atlas of high resolution infrared emission spectra identifies a number of gaseous atmospheric features significant to stratospheric chemistry in the 770–900- and 1100–1360-cm−1 regions at six zenith angles from 86.7 to 95.1°. A balloon-borne Michelson interferometer was flown to obtain ~0.03-cm−1 resolution spectra. Two 10-cm−1 extracts are presented here.
