Mauna Kea Observatories to Space Atmospheric Transmissions

This topic details the atmospheric transmission computed by MODTRAN4 Version 3 Release 1 for a path geometry from 4.2 km to 100 km (directly looking up). The spectral input range was specified between 0.100-3.000 microns at 0.001 micron increments, but MODTRAN only generated data from 0.200-3.000 microns.

Input Card Deck

The MODTRAN input card deck file is given below
