Abstract
A comparison of the double exponential model and the equivalent absorption coefficient model as applied to the atmospheric gas nitrous oxide N20 is made for low (20 cm -1) and high (5 cm -1) spectral resolutions. Both models are shown to represent low resolution N20 transmittance well. The double exponential model is shown to represent high resolution transmittance better than the equivalent absorption coefficient model does. Comparisons of the double exponential model at low and high resolutions using the same transmittance data base are made. It is shown that virtually no more error occurs when the double exponential model is used to model high resolution N20 transmittance as occurs when the double exponential model is used to represent low resolution transmittance.
