  1. Presented by invitation at the Symposium on Atmospheric Optics held under the joint auspices of the American Physical Society and the Optical Society of America, February 22, 1935.
  2. The literature up to 1930 and many details of this subject are to be found in the reports of C. Fabry and H. Buisson, Mémorial des Sciences Physiques de l'Acad. des Sci. de Paris, Vol. XI, 1930, and of F. W. Paul Goetz, Ergebn. d. kosm. Physik, Vol. I. Leipzig 1931.
  3. A. Fowler and R. J. Strutt, Proc. Roy. Soc. A93, 577 (1917).
  4. In Fig. 2 the Greek letter α is used instead of a.
  5. A similar amount of absorption is effected by oxygen at 1450A, in the center of its absorption band in the Schumann region; the shape of this band resembles very much that of ozone. (Cf. the values of its absorption coefficients, measured by R. Ladenburg and C. C. Van Voorhis, Phys. Rev. 43, 315 (1933).)
  6. Wulf, J. Opt. Soc. Am. 25, 231 (1935).
  7. Herzberg, Naturwiss. 20, 577 (1932).
  8. Goetz and Maier-Leibnitz, Zeits f. Geophysik 2, 253 (1933); Chalonge and Bassy, J. de phys. et rad. (7) 5, 309 (1934).
  9. Goetz, Meetham and Dobson, Proc. Roy. Soc. A145, 416 (1934).
  10. Dobson, Proc. Phys. Soc. London 43, 324 (1931).
  11. Erich and Victor H. Regener, Physik. Zeits. 35, 788 (1935).
  12. Compare I. Bartels, Elektrische Nachrichtentechnik, Vol. 10, special number 1933 (Physik der hohen Amosphaere).
  13. The same instrument has been used successfully for measuring the amount of ozone near ground level and the ultraviolet intensity of the sky light (cf. Helv. Phys. Acta 7, 672, 674 (1934)).
