Abstract

Atmospheric and laboratory atlases of high-resolution infrared absorption spectra have been generated from data obtained with the University of Denver Michelson-type interferometer balloon-borne spectrometer systems. The main objectives of the atlas work have been the identification and the detailed analysis of stratospheric infrared high-resolution spectral features. The stratospheric atlases cover many spectral intervals and provide tables of line positions and species identifications. High Sun spectra are used for identification of solar lines. Latest editions of these atlases include selected sections in the 760–1950- and 800–1700-cm−1 regions at 0.02- and 0.002-cm−1 resolutions, respectively. In addition to the stratospheric atlases, ground-based and laboratory spectral atlases have also been produced. The laboratory spectra of many molecules relevant to stratospheric chemistry have been obtained. A number of ongoing spectroscopic studies have been developed on the basis of the atlas work, including studies of solar and atmospheric spectral features.
