This directory contains line lists which are used by IDENTIFY/REIDENTIFY.
There may additional applications using these lists in the future.

		       	       LINE LISTS
                  (eg coordlist = linelists$henear.dat)

      argon.dat -  Vacuum wavelengths of the infrared emission lines of argon.
                   The second column lists relative intensities.  The data 
                   are from "Wavelength Standards in the Infrared", K.N. Rao
                   et al., 1966.
 ctiohenear.dat -  HENEAR list used at CTIO
   ctiohear.dat -  HEAR list used at CTIO
       cuar.dat -  A linelist for the built-in comparison source for the KPNO
		   Hydra instrument consisting of 6 CuAr hollow cathode
		   lamps.  The identifications are from Coude Echelle
		   spectra and a list from AAO (Schinckel, Phillips, and
		   Hill). All wavelengths are from Norlen (Physica Scripta.
		   Vol 8, 249-268, 1973) except for a few CuI lines from
		   Striganov and Sventitskii (Tables of Spectral Lines of
		   Neutral and Ionized Atoms, 1968).
       fear.dat -  FeAr Hollow Cathode line list between 3,000A and 10,000A.
		   The reference for this line list is "A CCD Atlas of
		   Comparison Spectra: FeAr Hollow Cathode, 3000A - 10,000A"
		   by D. Willmarth.  The atlas is available from the
		   KPNO User Support Office.
     henear.dat -  Selected list of HENEAR lines to be used for 
		   KPNO IIDS/IRS reductions - this list is identical to 
		   that in the KPNO mountain reduction software for these 
		   instruments.  Source of wavelengths:  1982 MIT
		   Wavelength Tables Vol. 2.  Multiplet numbers from
		   Charlotte Moore's A Multiplet Table of Astrophysical
		   Interest 1972.
 henearhres.dat -  High resolution list of HENEAR lines covering the wavelength
		   range 3300A - 11,100A.  See "A CCD Atlas of Comparison
		   Spectra: He-Ne-Ar, 3300A - 11,100A" by Daryl Willmarth,
		   April 1993.
   idhenear.dat -  Extended list of HENEAR lines for general use.
		   Source of wavelengths:  1982 MIT Wavelength Tables Vol. 2.
		   Multiplet numbers from Charlotte Moore's A Multiplet Table
		   of Astrophysical Interest 1972.
    krypton.dat -  Vacuum wavelengths of the infrared emission lines of krypton.
                   The second column lists relative intensities.  The data  
                   are from "Wavelength Standards in the Infrared", K.N. Rao 
                   et al., 1966.
lowskylines.dat -  Rest (air) wavelengths of all the OH vibration-rotation
                   lines in the sky spectrum, useful for low dispersion
                   spectra - see "Sky Spectra at a Light-Polluted Site and
                   Wavelength Zero Points", Osterbrock and Martel, UCO/LO
                   Bulletin No. __ .
    ohlines.dat -  Vacuum wavelengths from calculations of Chamberlain
                   (lambda < 1.20microns) and laboratory observations of Hubbard
                   and Brault using the Solar FTS (lambda > 1.2microns).
                   The second column gives the observed intensity in kR
                   (Steed and Baker 1979, Appl. Opt., 18, 3386) of observed
                   atmospheric lines.
   skylines.dat -  Night sky lines from various sources compiled by Don
		   York.  See file header for comments.
       thar.dat -  List of thorium-argon lines (3180 - 9665),
                   A CCD Atlas of Comparison Spectra: Thorium-Argon Hollow
                   Cathode 3180 A - 9665 A, revised Feb. 1992, Daryl Willmarth.
vacidhenear.dat -  The idhenear.dat list converted to vacuum wavelengths
                   using the equation: (n-1) x 10**8 = 8342.13 + 2406030
                   (130 - sigma**2)**-1 + 15997(38.9 - sigma**2)**-1
                   where sigma = 1/lambda(air) and air at T=15C, P=760mmHg, and
		   no water vapour. (See B. Edlen, 1966
                   Metrologia, Vol. 2, p. 71).
    vacthar.dat -  The thar.dat list converted to vacuum wavelengths
                   using the equation: (n-1) x 10**8 = 8342.13 + 2406030
                   (130 - sigma**2)**-1 + 15997(38.9 - sigma**2)**-1
                   where sigma = 1/lambda(air) and air at T=15C, P=760mmHg, and
		   no water vapour. (See B. Edlen, 1966

    thorium.dat -  Obsolete and will disappear in the future.  Use thar.dat.
 vacthorium.dat -  Obsolete and will disappear in the furture.  Use vacthar.dat.
