Abstract
In the present paper, an empirical formula is proposed which relater-'. the excess absorption by atmospheric water va or (with respect to the theoretical prediction based on the Van Vleck '-Weisskopf line shape) with frequency, temperature,water vapor and dry air pressures~ This formula makes it possible to 9erform reliable calculations of water vapor absorption at frequenci es up to 3000 |lz without understanding the true physical nature of the e:cess. A simple numerical model is formulated for computing the absorption in the frequency ranqe below 450 G11-4which is very important for remote sensing of the troposphere. This model is compared with the MPM model't.
