Abstract : The absorption by water vapor in six spectral regions within 5045-14,485/cm (1.98-0.69 microns) was investigated. Samples at high pressures are presented to provide data from which line strengths and band strengths can be determined, while samples at lower pressures provide information from which line widths can be found. Transmission spectra are shown along with extensive tables of transmittance, integrated absorptance, and integrated absorption coefficient. The integrated absorption coefficients in 1/cm/gm/(sq. cm.) were found to be as follows: 5045-5670/cm, 3.16 plus or minus 1600; 6640-7700/cm, 2.54 plus or minus 1300; 8560-9030/cm, 1.66 plus or minus 80; 9940-11,420/cm, 895 plus or minus 50; 11,795-12,765/cm, 57.2 plus or minus 2.7; and 11,385-14,485/cm, 56.1 plus or minus 2.8.
