Attenuation of infrared absorption in the troposphere is dominated by water vapor absorption. Most past work on the spectroscopy of water vapor has been on the analysis of the rotational and vibrational bands. Efforts to model the continuum absorption have not been as successful. It is demonstrated here that the far-wing phenomena is important in modeling the small but significant absorption in the continuum regions. Author
