Abstract

Spectral water vapor transmission of the bands between 0.7 μm and 1 μm is determined from ground-based measurements of direct solar radiation with a high resolution grating spectrometer. These transmission values are compared with those published by Moskalenko, which are the only spectral water vapor data below 1 μm applicable to real atmospheres. Our values of the spectral transmission and those reported by Moskalenko differ considerably. New βν values to calculate spectral transmission values by means of Moskalenko's transmission function are given. The resulting absorptions of the total bands agree better with absorptions obtained from Yamamoto than with those from Moskalenko.
