Abstract: Acetaldehyde molecules in the first singlet excited state contain two coupled low frequency vibrational modes, $\nu_{14}$ (inversion) and $\nu_{15}$ (torsion). In an earlier paper, $^{m}$ a two dimensional least squares analysis of the first seven bands in the UV spectrum of acetaldehyde jet-cooled vapor gave an excited state barrier to inversion of $585.13 cm^{-1}$ and a torsional barrier of $721.43 cm^{-1}$. A discussion of the results of a vibrational and rotational analysis of 12 additional bands beyond this earlier analysis will be presented. The assignment of the $14^{2}_{0}$ band has changed and the inclusion of the higher members of the torsional mode has given refined values for the barriers.
