COMMENTS: Recommendation:

The absorption cross sections for 230 K measured by

S.P. Sander, "Temperature dependence of the NO3 absorption spectrum," J. Phys. Chem. 90, 4135-4142 (1986); DOI: 10.1021/j100408a060

have been recalculated by the formula for the temperature dependence

σ = 3.63×10-17 - (5.13×10-20 × T)

and normalized to the recommended value 2.50×10-17 cm2 molecule-1 at 662 nm, which is obtained by averaging the data of
