1 Theoretical work on the water monomer and dimer Matt Barber Jonathan Tennyson University College London December 2008

2 Outline of work so far Improvements to water line list Extended to cover ,600 cm -1 New sources added Partition function for water dimer Few energy levels filled at low temperatures Most dimers are in the ground vibrational state Rotational levels convergent up to 20K No useful published comparisons

3 Line lists for cm -1 HITRAN Good reference for strong lines BT2 R J Barber and Jonathan Tennyson, UCL Theoretical model with experimentally determined energy levels. Retrofitted experimental spectra Tolchenov R, Tennyson J: "Water line parameters from refitted spectra constrained by empirical upper state levels: study of the cm-1 region". JQSRT, 109(4), (2008). Grenoble data Very accurate measurements using cavity ring down spectroscopy Comparatively clean area for HITRAN lines
