Abstract

A survey of the history and development of submillimeter atmospheric spectroscopy is presented up to and including the most recent activities and progress in the field. Our current understanding of the details of the spectrum and the information it can provide is discussed, and the paper concludes with some suggestions about future developments on the subject.
