Paper Abstract

The status and updating of the AFGL Atmospheric Absorption Line Parameter Compilation is discussed. This data base and its concomitant Trace Gas Compilation form the basis of HITRAN, the overall program for calculating high resolution transmittance and radiance through atmospheric paths. A new code has been developed which calculates absorption coefficients at equally spaced wavenumber intervals through multilayer atmospheric paths with a great deal of computational advantages realized. Examples of transmittance and radiance calculations are presented.
