Abstract

We conducted year-round measurements of the downwelling atmospheric infrared emission over the South Pole in 1992. The instrument covered the 550–1600-wave-number region with 1-wave-number resolution. We calculated the water vapor content for clear-sky cases and found a good correlation with the surface temperature, with values ranging from 0.2 to 0.8 mm. Ozone-sonde profiles were compared with total column abundances of O3 retrieved from the spectra. The experiment is explained in detail, including the instrumentation, calibration, and retrieval methods used. The calibrated spectra contain information about several trace gases, water, clouds, temperature profiles, and aerosols.
