The atmospheric transmission function is calculated for IR radiation propagated along tangent paths at HCl, HF, and H2O absorption lines, both including and ignoring the Dike effect (line narrowing). The differences in the monochromatic transmission functions for Galatry and Voigt lineshapes reach 1–2% for HCl and HF lines and 5–8% for water vapor lines near 2.5 mm. Additional errors in determining HCl, HF, and H2O content from satellite measurements of the atmospheric transmission at spectral resolution Δν ≤ 0.01 cm-1 can reach 0.8–2.0; 2.0–5; 10–25%, respectively.
