Abstract:

A critical review of rate constants assigned to vibrational excitation and deexcitation processes for O3 in the Strategic High Altitude Atmospheric Radiance Code SHARC 2.0 is presented. A complete list of O3 pure rotational and rovibrational band parameters, based on the 199192 version of the HITRAN data base, is included. Modifications to specific energy transfer processes used in the SHARC 2.0 scheme have been recommended based on recent experimental literature data and on recent atmospheric observations. Author
