Hi guys this is my first post! I've been trying to find a plot of the atmospheric transmittance of Venus but I've had no luck. I'm particularly interested in the C-band transmittance. Thanks for any information you have!

Sorry your first post took three days to get an answer! Can you not just look up the absorbtion spectrum for the Earth's atmosphere and compare that to Venus' spectrum? Subtract one from the other type of thing? Venus is just reflected sunlight with some absorbtion lines, etc....

Perhaps this might help:

Is that what you're looking for?

Thanks for your reply but I'm not looking for the reflected spectrum I'm looking for the transmittance plot also known as the opacity plot. Here's an example of the Earth's atmospheric transmittance plot:
