Abstract
rAtmospneric emission fluctuations due to spatial and temporal variations of the relative humidity along line-of-sight can he a significant source of noise for infrared sensor systems. A theoretical model of the infrared sky noise is described which can be used for arbitrary geometries. The model is in good agreement with clear daytime mountaintop observations.
