Although the atmospheric oxygen bands have been the subject of many investigations, the details of their structure have remained only partially explained. The earlier investigators [2] did not have any theory to guide them and it can readily be understood that they often came to contradictory results. In the present paper we have tried to account for the structure of the bands as completely as possible. Our progress has been based on new wave-length measurements which we believe to be more accurate than the previous ones.
