Line lists and atmospheric transmission

The JPL Molecular Spectroscopy Group maintains a very complete line list that covers the CASIMIR bands.
The Leiden Atomic and Molecular Database (LAMDA) provides atomic and molecular constants for radiative transfer modeling of important species.

Some important lines and atmospheric transmission plots (bands in bold are most likely for first flights):
