17 December 1980 Balloon-Borne Measurements Of Infrared (IR) Backgrounds
Author Affiliations +
High altitude infrared background data in the middle infrared were obtained during a series of balloon flights made several years ago. One aspect of these measurements that was difficult to explain physically was the large short-term fluctuations in the background radiation observed occasionally in Alaska. During a series of balloon flights made in 1978, data were obtained which appears to explain the observed fluctuations.
