Direct calculations aimed at analyzing the propagation of light through thermally inhomogeneous gases require that the parameters of the spectral absorption lines (PSL's) be known within a wide temperature range. An initial version of a databank on high-temperature PSL's has been compiled at the Institute of Atmospheric Optics, Tomsk.
This paper outlines the problems of the completeness and reliability of a databank of H2O PSL's. The control procedure is based on calculations of the broad-band characteristics, such as spectral trends of the averaged absorption coefficient and the temperature dependence of the integral intensity of the H2O band systems at 6.3, 2.7, and 1.87 mm, with subsequent comparison with the experimental data.
