Microwave measurements made with ground-based radio telescopes disclosed that the rela- tive abundance of CO increases significantly between 50 and 80 km in Earth's atmosphere, and between 80 and 110 km altitude in the atmosphere of Venus. This was the first ground-based microwave observation of CO above 50 km in Earth's atmosphere, verifying previous photo- chemical calculations. [.. . ] Carbon monoxide at lower altitudes on Venus and Mars, as well as on Earth, had been previously measured by infrared techniques. Bull. Amer. Meteor. Soc., 57, 478.
