Short summary
Using infrared sounders on satellite platforms to monitor concentrations of atmospheric CFC-12, a stratospheric-ozone-depleting molecule with a long lifetime, crucially requires accurate laboratory spectroscopic data. This work describes a new high-resolution infrared absorption cross-section data set for remote-sensing purposes; this dataset improves upon the one currently available in the HITRAN and GEISA databases.
