A new version of the AFGL atmospheric absorption line parameters compilation is now available. Major modifications since the last edition of 1978 include the updating of the strongest bands of water vapor, updated line positions for carbon dioxide, improved ozone parameters in the 5- and 10-microm regions, and updated and additional data for methane in the 3.5- and 7.7-microm regions. The atlas now contains over 159,000 rotational and vibration-rotation transitions from 0.3 to 17,880 cm(-1).

Ozone Air Broadening Coefficients In The 9 μm Region

Air broadening coefficients and line strengths are reported for selected ozone lines in the 8.8 to 10μm spectral region. These parameters were obtained from a least squares fit of the Voigt line

Solar absorption by atmospheric water vapor: a comparison of radiation models

We have intercompared several different procedures for evaluating solar absorption by atmospheric water vapor, and in particular we have employed a random band model as a diagnostic tool for

Calculation of longwave radiation fluxes in atmospheres

A technique for the computation of longwave radiative quantities using the line-by-line approach has been developed in the Soviet Union. The method has been applied to obtain fluxes and cooling rates

Long-term tropospheric formaldehyde concentrations deduced from ground-based fourier transform solar infrared measurements

We report a 13-year (1992-2005) dataset of to- tal column measurements of formaldehyde (HCHO) over Lauder, New Zealand, inferred from solar infrared spectra measured using a high-resolution Fourier
