Detailed Description

Tabulated high resolution cross-sections of O3 measured by Daumont, Brion and Malicet in the early 1990's. Voigt et al. 2001. The wavelength range is a little variable with temperature but covers the entire UV to NIR region, from 194.50 nm to 830.00 nm at 0.01 to 0.02 nm resolution. The cross-section data were collected at 0.01-0.02 nm resolution and each wavelength/cross-section table varies in size from 22,052 to 63,501 entries. The data consists of 5 tables of wavelength versus cross-section for 5 temperatures.

The class derives from skOpticalProperties_UserDefinedAbsorption which was upgraded in July 2012 to properly interpolate the DBM wavelength/cross-section tables.

Temperature Range
measurements are provided at 5 temperatures covering typical stratospheric and tropospheric conditions:
  1. 218 K
  2. 228 K
  3. 243 K
  4. 273 K
  5. 295 K
Wavelength Range
The wavelength range of each temperature table is slightly different and is given below. Note that most of the temperature variation occurs in the huggins band between 315 and 360 nm
  • 218K -> 194.50nm to 650.01nm
  • 228K -> 194.50nm to 520.01nm
  • 243K -> 194.50nm to 519.01nm
  • 273K -> 299.50nm to 520.01nm
  • 295K -> 195.00nm to 830.00nm

We looked into temperature interpolation and while DBM suggest that a quadratic interpolation scheme (page 269 of paper 3.) they do not indicate an explicit technique. We tested several quadratic fitting routines and found that a truncated linear fit in temperatuer was visually more appealing than any of the quadratic fits and had none of the undesirable artifacts (excessive curvature etc) that naturally arises with quadratic curve fitting.

Data Source
These data are an exact replication of the data files O3_CRS_BDM_218K.dat, O3_CRS_BDM_228K.dat, O3_CRS_BDM_243K.dat, O3_CRS_BDM_273K.dat and O3_CRS_BDM_295K.dat on the IGACO site, The files were copied sometime between July 16-July 25 2012.
