COMMENTS: Absorption measurements at a spectral resolution of 0.11 nm using a flow gas cell and a D2 lamp as a light source

Absorption cross sections obtained by the "cutoff prescription", i.e. truncation at 216 nm (one of two presciptions for the absorption cross sections for incorporation into the author's photochemical models; corrected for Rayleigh scattering)

Data have been obtained by personal communication from Sukrit Ranjan (May 2020)
