Abstract:
Atmospheric Handbook Data Tables is historical digital data set DSI-9796, archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). This data set consists of one combined file containing 226 data files. The files contains information, programs, and data largely taken from results published in scientific journals. In general, sections of files are grouped according to the atmospheric area. Atmospheric data tables in this data set are described in World Data Center A for Meteorology and World Data Center A for Solar Terrestrial Physics Report UAG-89. This report will be furnished with all orders for this file. Data areas cover attenuation coefficients for the atmosphere and H2O; 1962 standard atmospheres; cloud drop size distributions for water and ice spheres; solar spectral irradiance (nimbus and SMM satellite solar irradiance data); sky spectral radiance; Rayleigh coefficients for air; refractive indices for air, ice, liquid H2O, and various atmospheric aerosols; and relative reflectance for ice and H2O. To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public. SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: data set CURRENTNESS REFERENCE: Ground Condition

ATTRIBUTE ACCURACY REPORT: During the course of several years of work in atmospheric spectroscopy, V. E. Derr of the NOAA Environmental Research Laboratories, Boulder, Colorado compiled several useful tables of atmospheric data from literature, and stored these data on computer disk and tape for ready access during theoretical calculations. In order to not pass judgment on the accuracy of these data, the "Atmospheric Handbook: Atmospheric Data Tables Available on Computer Tape" (Report UAG-89) was published as a compromise between fully verified and uncertain values. Every effort was made to ensure the faithfulness of the tables to the source and to avoid degradation of interpolated values. If more than one source appears authoritative, both are quoted. Under this compromise, the researcher is advised to use the values cautiously, but a very valuable set of data is provided for researchers in solar radiation. The accuracy of these data can be determined only by reference to the source. Please note that individual data elements are not described within this information system.
