Spectra of air samples at ground level of approximately 10m, 100m, and 1km, and solar spectra obtained for solar zenith distances between 40 and 87 degrees have been obtained. Examples of these spectra in the region from 1100 to 1200/cm are presented together with spectra calculated from the atmospheric line parameter listing prepared by the Air Force Geophysical Laboratories. From the absorption features of fluorocarbon-12 near 1160/cm in solar spectra, a mean tropospheric abundance of 0.34 ppb has been estimated. A photochemical cell capable of approximating the solar noon irradiance at ground level between 300 and 400nm and in which path lengths in excess of 200m can be obtained is described. This cell has been used to study the photolysis of HNO2 and a rate constant of 0.070/min has been measured. Spectra of more than 20 gases of importance to air pollution problems, obtained under controlled conditions covering the region from 700 to 1500/cm, are presented. Progress in the construction of a cell, coolable to -60 C, and capable of being irradiated at wavelengths down to 170nm, is described.
