A complete update of spectroscopic line parameters for the 10-μm bands of ozone is reported. The listing contains calculated positions, intensities, lower state energies, and air- and self-broadened halfwidths of more than 53,000 lines. The results have been generated using improved spectroscopic parameters obtained in a number of recent high resolution laboratory studies. A total of eighteen bands of 16O3 (sixteen hot bands plus the ν1 and ν3 fundamentals) are included along with the ν1 and ν3 fundamentals of both 16O16O18AO and 16O18AO16O. As shown by comparisons of line-by-line simulations with 0.003-cm−1 resolution balloon-borne stratospheric solar spectra, the new parameters greatly improve the accuracy of atmospheric calculations in the 10-μm region, especially for the isotopic 16O16O18AO and 16O18AO16O lines.
