Abstract

Quantitative data are presented to illustrate the infrared spectral radiance of the sky under a variety of situations. A qualitative discussion of the dominant spectral features is given to show the importance of the emission and scattering processes, the effect of angle of elevation, angle of azimuth, sun angle, and cloud cover.
