DATAFILE: NO3_Burrows(1985)_298K_622nm.txt
NAME: nitrate radical
AUTHOR(YEAR): Burrows(1985)
T: 298K
λ: 622nm
BIBLIOGRAPHY: J.P. Burrows, G.S. Tyndall, and G.K. Moortgat, "Absorption spectrum of NO3 and kinetics of the reaction of NO3 with NO2, Cl, and several stable atmospheric species at 298 K", J. Phys. Chem. 89, 4848-4856 (1985); DOI: 10.1021/j100268a038
COMMENTS: Absorption measurements in the photolysis of Cl2/ClONO2/N2 and F2/HNO3-N2 mixtures in the wavelength region from 615 to 670 nm

From the measured absorption cross section
σ(622.3 nm) = (1.19 ± 0.36)×10-17 cm2 molecule-1
the value for 622 nm has been derived
