Title: NEAR INFRARED SPECTROSCOPY OF CARBON DIOXIDE: $^{16}O^{12}C^{16}O$ LINE POSITIONS

Abstract: High-resolution near infrared $4000 - 9000 cm^{-1}$ spectra of carbon dioxide have been recorded using the McMath-Pierce Fourier transform spectrometer at the Kitt Peak National Solar Observatory. Spectroscopic constants have been determined for 53 different vibrational states of the $^{16}O^{12}C^{16}O$ isotopologue, including 8 vibrational states for which laboratory spectra have not previously been reported. Calibration using the 2-0 band of CO near $4200 cm^{-1}$ and the $(\nu_{1} + \nu_{3})$ combination band of $C_{2}H_{2}$ near $6500 cm^{-1}$ provides absolute line position accuracies of $2 \times 10^{-5} cm^{-1}$ (RMS) for strong, isolated transitions throughout the observed range. Fits with RMS errors less than $3.8 \times 10^{-5} cm^{-1}$ have been obtained for the $20013 \leftarrow 00001, 20012 \leftarrow 00001$, and $20011 \leftarrow 00001$ bands and RMS errors less than $6 \times 10^{-5} cm^{-1}$ have been obtained for the $30014 \leftarrow 00001, 30013 \leftarrow 00001, 30012 \leftarrow 00001$, and $00031 \leftarrow 00001$ bands. The new line list satisfies the line position accuracies required for the next generation of $CO_{2}$ remote sensing instruments, improves the capability of solarviewing spectrometers to retrieve precise column $CO_{2}$ measurements, and provides a secondary frequency standard in the $NIR.^{a}$
