Abstract: Line mixing has been measured for two pairs of transitions in the $\nu_2$ band of water. The rotational assignments of the four lines (in terms of the rotational quantum numbers $J$, $K_a$ and $K_c$) are a) two P branch lines: (1 0 1)$\leftarrow$(2 1 2) mixing with (2 1 2)$\leftarrow$(3 0 3) at 1539.061 and 1540.300 cm$^{-1}$, respectively; and b) two R branch lines: (3 0 3)$\leftarrow$(2 1 2) mixing with (2 1 2)$\leftarrow$(1 0 1) at 1652.400 and 1653.267 cm$^{-1}$, respectively. Pressure broadening coefficients of H$_2$O (halfwidths, pressure shifts and off-diagonal relaxation matrix elements) are reported for seven broadeners (self, H$_2$, He, CO$_2$, N$_2$, O$_2$ and air) obtained from retrievals performed by multispectrum fitting implemented with line mixing.}
