Calculated atmospheric absorption and emission of radiation for several atmospheric conditions and elevation angles are given for frequencies of 1 to 340 GHz. The emission curves are those accepted in 1982 by the International Radio Consultative Committee (CCIR). The absorption values from these calculations are compared with others appearing in the literature or in use elsewhere.
