Title:HITRAN2016: Part I. Line lists for H2O, CO2, O3, N2O, CO, CH4, and O2
Author(s):Gordon, Iouli E
Contributor(s):Hill, Christian; Kochanov, Roman V; Tan, Yan; Rothman, Laurence S.
Abstract:The HITRAN2016footnote{I. E. Gordon, L. S. Rothman, C. Hill, R. V. Kochanov, Y. Tan, et al. The HITRAN2016 Molecular Spectroscopic Database. JQSRT 2017;submitted.} database is now officially releasedfootnote{Many spectroscopists and atmospheric scientists worldwide have contributed data to the database or provided invaluable validations.}._x000d_ Plethora of experimental and theoretical molecular spectroscopic data were collected, evaluated and vetted before compiling the new edition of the database. The database is now distributed through the dynamic user interface HITRAN$online$ (available at underline{}) which offers many flexible options for browsing and downloading the datafootnote{C. Hill, I. E. Gordon, R. V. Kochanov, L. Barrett, J.S. Wilzewski, L.S. Rothman, JQSRT. 177 (2016) 4-–14}. In addition HITRAN Application Programming Interface (HAPI) offers modern ways to download the HITRAN data and use it to carry out sophisticated calculationsfootnote{R.V. Kochanov, I. E. Gordon, L. S. Rothman, P. Wcislo, C. Hill, J. S. Wilzewski, JQSRT. 177 (2016) 15–-30.}._x000d_ The line-by-line lists for almost all of the 47 HITRAN molecules were updated in comparison with the previous compilation (HITRAN2012footnote{L. S. Rothman, I. E. Gordon et al. The HITRAN2012 Molecular Spectroscopic Database. JQSRT, 113 (2013) 4--50.}). Some of the most important updates for major atmospheric absorbers, such as H$_2$O, CO$_2$, O$_3$, N$_2$O, CO, CH$_4$, and O$_2$, will be presented in this talk, while the trace gases will be presented in the next talk by Y. Tan. The HITRAN2016 database now provides alternative line-shape representations for a number of molecules, as well as broadening by gases dominant in planetary atmospheres. In addition, substantial extension and improvement of cross-section data is featured, which will be described in a dedicated talk by R. V.~Kochanov._x000d_ The new edition of the database is a substantial step forward to improve retrievals of the planetary atmospheric constituents in comparison with previous editions, while offering new ways of working with the data.\_x000d_ The HITRAN database is supported by the NASA AURA and PDART program grants NNX14AI55G and NNX16AG51G.
