I. Motivations to understand water dimer absorption throughout visible and IR region in the atmosphere. To create a high accuracy water dimer spectra in agreement with experiments. To create a linelist of all possible water dimer transitions.

II. Improved Water Monomer Parameters To get the water dimer spectroscopy correct we need an accurate understanding of the water monomer contribution to the observed experimental spectra [*] Courtesy of R. L. Jones & A. J. L. Shillings, University of Cambridge.

III. Water Dimer Characteristics Dimer VRT states complicated by tunnelling effects Tunnelling between equivalent states in the PES is feasible! Acceptor Tunnelling: –No bond breaking here –Lowest tunnelling barrier Also, by breaking the Hydrogen bond, other tunnelling paths possible: –Donor-Acceptor interchange –Donor Bifurcation Tunnelling
