Absorption and solar radiation spectra

  1. Jul 21, 2011 #1

    I'm hoping someone can advise me on the best place to find the absorption spectra for water (fresh) and ice, for the wavelength range UV to IR. Also, I'm looking for the solar radiation spectrum at the surface of the Earth (i.e. after atmospheric effects have been taken into account).

    It would be helpful, if possible, to get my hands on tabular figures rather than just graphical visualisations.

    I realise that this information might be contained in journal articles and the like - that shouldn't be a problem.

    Thanks in advance,

    All I can suggest is to try some google searches. Beyond that I cannot help you, sorry!
