dc.description.abstract For $^{16}O_{3}$, accurate $H_{2}$-broadened halfwidths are difficult to obtain for a large number of transitions. Recent $measurements^{1}$ have allowed assigning average air-broadened halfwidths of ozone for A-type bands, $\alpha$ = $0.083 cm^{-1}$/atm, and for B-type bands, $\alpha$ = $0.077 cm^{-1}$/atm at 296K. These measurements, however, were not extensive enough to give J-dependence of the halfwidths. Theoretical $N_{2}$-broadened halfwidths have been determined for a number of $\nu _{3}$ (A-type) and $\nu_{L}$ (B-type) transitions of ozone. The halfwidths have been evaluated using the Anderson-Tsao-Ournutte theory of collisional-broadening and by the more rigorous Quantum Fourier Transform theory due to $Davies.^{2}$ In the calculations, contributions to the halfwidth from dipole-quadrupole interaction and quadrupole-quadrupole interaction are considered. Both methods are compared with experiment. From the study, air-broadened halfwidths will be calculated for an extensive list of transitions for ozone, and these will appear on a future AFGL Main Gas Compilation. 1. J. M. Hoell, C. N.
