Abstract:

The results of modeling of atmospheric absorption spectra of solar radiation in spectral intervals, where measurement of H2O content can be carried out, are presented. A comparison with the measured atmospheric solar spectra is made. Water vapor total content in vertical atmospheric column is retrieved from the measured atmospheric spectra with the use of different spectroscopic databanks of H2O absorption lines for various meteorological conditions and solar zenith angles.

Keywords:

atmospheric radiative transfer, water vapor content, spectroscopic databanks
