absorption cross sections at 1-nm intervals as listed in Table 2

The Absorption cross sections are estimated to be uncertain by ±50%, and they are smaller by a factor ∼4 than those determined later by

Steady state concentration of NO3 based on kinetic data and determined (extrapolation of the 650-1025K data to 300 K) by
