The new edition of the AFGL trace gas compilation is described. The latest version provides the necessary parameters for the computation of absorption or emission spectra of major bands of twenty-one gases in the region from 0 to 10,000 cm−1. Emphasis on this edition has been on the addition of numerous millimeter and submillimeter transitions, the inclusion of bands of significance in upper atmospheric processes, and strong IR bands of trace constituents likely to be used for remote detection. The sources for the additions and modifications of the absorption parameters are summarized.
