Use of the BT 2 Water Line List to Determine the Rotational Temperature and H 2 O Column Density of the Circumstellar Envelope on Five Dates

Abstract

BT2 is the most accurate and complete synthetic water line list in existence; it includes over 505 million transitions. BT2 spectra generated at various temperatures and column densities were fitted to observed H band spectra of V838 Mon recorded on 5 dates between 20 Nov. 2002 and 25 Dec. 2004. Five absorption features in the observed spectra were… (More)
