Table I. Visible Bands of H2O on Compilation (4V,4V + δ,5v) dioxide; ozone; nitrous oxide; carbon monoxide; and oxygen. This new version supersedes the last revision of September 1976. The major modifications are to water vapor, carbon dioxide, methane, and oxygen (identified as molecules 1, 2, 6, and 7 on the compilation). All halfwidths of water for transitions up to 13,000 cm have been replaced with values obtained from theoretical calculations based on Ref. 3. The new linewidths differ…

AFGL atmospheric absorption line parameters compilation: 1982 edition.

The latest edition of the AFGL atmospheric absorption line parameters compilation for the seven most active infrared terrestrial absorbers is described and the sources of the absorption parameters are summarized.

Measurements of minor constituents in the middle atmopshere from IR limb emission spectra: a feasibility study.

The feasibility of detecting fifteen trace constituents against atmospheric background has been studied from IR limb emission spectra (4-100 μm) at various tangent heights in the middle atmosphere to indicate the sensitivities and spectral resolutions that would be needed to measure these less abundant species.

Improved ozone line parameters in the 10- and 4.8-microm regions.

To improve the ozone line parameters in the 10and 4.8-μm regions, several recent results in the analysis that has been underway in France have been combined to obtain improved rotational and coupling constants that have been used to calculate line positions.

Temperature dependent NO2 cross sections at high spectral resolution

The importance of nitrogen dioxide in both the troposphere and the stratosphere has been known for some years, and since the early 1970s, spectroscopic determinations have played an important role in

Spectroscopic measurements of carbon monoxide in the stratosphere

Results obtained from two experiments concerning the repartition of carbon monoxide in the stratosphere are presented and compared to model predictions. Infrared solar absorption spectra were

Simultaneous spectroscopic determination of the latitudinal, seasonal, and diurnal variability of stratospheric N2O, NO, NO2, and HNO3

The importance Of NOx compounds to stratospheric chemistry has been clearly established. We report below on a program to measure latitudinal, seasonal, and diurnal variations in stratospheric N2O,

The atmospheric column abundance of IO: Implications for stratospheric ozone

Absorption attributable to atmospheric IO is observed in high-resolution, high air mass solar spectra taken at the National Solar Observatory, Kitt Peak, Arizona, in March 1995. These observations,



AFCRL atmospheric absorption line parameters compilation

Abstract : The report describes a compilation of the molecular spectroscopic parameters for a number of infrared-active molecules occurring naturally in the terrestrial atmsophere. The following

Accuracy of the AFCRL atmospheric absorption line parameters compilation in the 10-microm atmospheric window.

A study of the reliability of the most recent AFCRL atmospheric absorption line listing in the region of the 10-μm atmospheric window (from 700 c m 1 to 1350 cm") and found very good agreement was found over all pathlengths, with some lines having small frequency or intensity errors.

Higher ro-vibrational levels of H2O deduced from high resolution oxygen-hydrogen flame spectra between 6200 and 9100 cm-1

The spectra of hydrogen-oxygen and acetylene-oxygen flames have been recorded on a Fourier transform spectrometer in the region 6200–9100 cm-1 with a resolution of 0·015 cm-1. In this region, we have

High Resolution Spectra of CO2 in the 3500 to 3770 cm Region at 625 K.

Abstract : This report describes results obtained with an interferometer spectrometer of the absorption spectrum of CO2 at a temperature of 625 K. The hot cell used in the measurements is described
