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 molecules are included in this compilation water vapor carbon dioxide ozone nitrous oxide carbon monoxide methane and oxygen. The spectral region covered extends from less than 1 micrometer to the far infrared, and data are presented on more than 100, 000 spectral lines. The parameters included in the compilation for each line are frequency, intensity, half-width, energy of the lower state of the transition, vibrational and rotational identifications of the upper and lower energy states, an isotopic identification, and a molecular identification. A discussion is provided separately for each molecular species, indicating the sources and accuracy of the data and a general discussion of how the data were obtained.
