This paper describes a computer accessible catalog of submillimeter, millimeter, and microwave spectral lines in the frequency range between 0 and 10,000 GHz (i.e., wavelengths longer than 30 μm). The catalog can be used as a planning guide or as an aid in identification and analysis of observed spectral lines. The information listed for each spectral line includes the frequency and its estimated error, the intensity, lower state energy, and quantum number assignment. The catalog has been constructed by using theoretical least-squares fits of published spectra lines to accepted molecular models. The associated predictions and their estimated errors are based on the resultant fitted parameters and their covariances.
