Abstract

Lorentz air-broadening coefficients and relative intensities have been measured for forty-three lines in the pure rotational band and twenty lines in the ν2 band of H216O between 800 and 1150 cm−1. The results were derived from analysis of nine 0.017-cm−1 resolution atmospheric absorption spectra recorded over horizontal paths of 0.5–1.5 km with the McMath Fourier transform spectrometer and main solar telescope operated on Kitt Peak by the National Solar Observatory. A nonlinear least-squares spectral fitting technique was used in the spectral analysis. The results are compared with previous measurements and calculations. In most cases, the measured pressure-broadening coefficients and intensities are significantly different from the values in the 1986 HITRAN line parameters compilation.

Fig. 1

Atmospheric (solid line) and best-fit calculated (open diamonds) spectra in the region of single H216O and 12C16O2 lines (lower panel). The atmospheric spectrum was normalized to the highest measured signal in the fitted region. The residuals (observed minus calculated) are plotted in the upper panel. Note the expanded vertical scales used in both plots. The 12C16O2 line at 980.9132 cm−1 is the R28 transition of the 00011–10001 band. The H216O line at 981.4500 cm−1 is the ν2 band J′ = 7, K a = 4 , K c = 3 J = 8 , K a = 7 , K c = 2 transition.

The error bars are two times the standard deviation of the measured intensity. The units are cm−1 atm−1 at 296 K.

Difference between the Lorentz air-broadening coefficient measured in this study and the calculated Lorentz air-broadening coefficient on the 1986 HITRAN compilation14 plotted vs J″. The upper panel shows results for lines with HITRAN widths estimated using the Davies averaging algorithm; the lower panel includes only the lines with HITRAN widths computed by direct calculation with the quantum Fourier transform method.28 The error bars are two times the standard deviation of the measured Lorentz air-broadening coefficient.

Comparison of line intensities measured in this study Sm with intensities in the 1986 HITRAN line parameters compilation14SH intensities calculated by Benedict and Calfee15SB, and intensities calculated by Toth24ST. Each of the plots shows ratios of the measured intensity divided by the calculated intensity from one of the reference data sets plotted vs wavenumber (cm−1). The error bars are two times the standard deviation of the measured intensity normalized to the reference intensity.
