Abstract. The aim of this paper is to discuss different models that describe atmospheric transmission in the infrared. They were compared in order to choose the most appropriate one for certain atmospheric conditions. Universal models and different inaccuracies connected with them were analysed in this paper. It is well known that all these models are different, but the aim of this paper is calculate how big the differences are between the characteristics of atmospheric transmission as a function of the distance. There have been models analysed from the literature, and these are used in infrared cameras. Correctly measured atmospheric transmission allows the correct temperature of an object to be determined, which is very vast problem that is discussed in paper.
