Paper Abstract

The goal of the paper is to show that the determination by optical remote sensing methods of reliable vertical concentration profiles or column densities necessitates the best possible knowledge of the spectroscopic line parmeters involved (positions, intensities, linewidths...). In the first part some recalls concerning molecular spectroscopy are given whereas the second part gives specific examples (isotopic ozone, nitrogen dioxide, deuterated water vapor) illustrating clearly the need of precise spectroscopic parameters in order to make reliable optical remote sensing measurements in the atmosphere.
