New water vapor line parameters in the 26000–13000cm−1 region

Abstract : The radiative properties of water vapor play an important role in the physical and chemical processes occurring in the atmosphere. Accurate knowledge of the line parameters for this species is therefore needed. This work presents new measurements of water vapor line parameters in the 26 000-13 000 cm−1 spectral region. The measurements were obtained by combining a high-resolution Fourier transform spectrometer with a long-path absorption cell, thus allowing the observation of very weak, previously unobserved, lines. A total of more than 9000 lines have been identiÿed and their position, integrated cross section and self-broadening parameter have been determined. The dependence of the line parameters on nitrogen bu er gas pressure (0-800 hPa) has also been studied. The complete line list presented here is primarily compared to the HITRAN spectroscopic database, most frequently used in atmospheric calculations.
