Short summary
Using infrared sounders on satellite platforms to monitor concentrations of atmospheric HCFC-22, a stratospheric-ozone-depleting molecule which is still increasing in the atmosphere, crucially requires accurate laboratory spectroscopic data. This manuscript describes a new high-resolution infrared absorption cross-section data set for remote-sensing purposes; this improves upon the one currently available in the HITRAN and GEISA databases.
