Abstract
The atmospheric models constructed by McClatchey et al are used to calculate the sky spectral radiance. A comparison between experimental results and model predictions shows general agreement, except for a discrepancy around 10 mu m. The origin of this discrepancy is discussed together with an alternative method of calculation of the sky spectral radiance at 10 mu m.
