High-resolution spectra of H216O vapor covering the region from 5750 to 7965 cm−1 were used to determine experimental values of line positions and strengths of over 3750 vibration–rotation transitions in the (110)-(000), (011)–(000), (040)–(000), (120)–(000), (021)–(000), (200)–(000), (101)–(000), (002)–(000), (031)–(010), (210)–(010) and (111)–(010) bands from which rotational energy levels in the (040), (120), (021), (200), (101) and (002) vibrational states were obtained. The line strengths and frequencies reported here are considered to be a marked improvement over the values listed in the 1986 edition of the hitran database, and a preliminarly listing from this work has been included in the 1993 hitran edition.
