Abstract [en]

In order to investigate the upper troposphere/lower stratosphere (UTLS) region of the earth's atmosphere, ESA/ESTEC (European space agency) is considering the opportunity to develop the spaceborne limb sounding millimeter sensor "MASTER" (millimeter wave acquisitions for stratosphere/troposphere exchange research). This instrument is part of the "atmospheric composition explorer for chemistry and climate interactions" (ACECHEM) project. In addition, ESA/ESTEC is developing the "MARSCHALS" (millimeter-wave airborne receiver for spectroscopic characterization of atmospheric limb sounding) airborne instrument which will demonstrate the feasibility of MASTER. The present paper describes the line-by-line database which was generated in order to meet at best the needs of the MASTER (or MARSCHALS) instrument. The linelist involves line positions, line intensities, line broadening and line shift parameters in the 294-305, 316-325, 342-348, 497-506 and 624-626 GHz spectral microwindows. This database was first generated for the target molecules for MASTER (H2O, O3, N2O, CO, O2, HNO3, HCl, ClO, CH3Cl, BrO). In addition, ten additional molecules (SO2, NO2, OCS, H2CO, HOCl, HCN, H2O2, COF2, HO2 and HOBr) had also to be considered in the database as "possible interfering species" for the retrieval of the target molecules of MASTER. The line parameters were derived, depending on their estimated accuracy, (i) from a combination of spectral parameters included in the JPL and HITRAN catalogs (ii) from data taken into the literature or (iii) using data obtained through experimental measurements (and/or) calculations performed during the present study.
