Short summary
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. There have been models analysed from the literature, and these are used in infrared cameras.
