KM91a V. Kaufman and W. C. Martin, J. Phys. Chem. Ref. Data 20, 83 (1991). We have quoted Ritz-calculated wavelengths for most Mg II lines from this compilation. These values are much more accurate than the directly measured wavelengths in the region below 2000 Å.

PTW98 J. C. Pickering, A. P. Thorne, and J. K. Webb, Mon. Not. R. Astron Soc. 300, 131 (1998). High-accuracy measurements of Mg I and Mg II resonant lines [PTW98], quoted here, give improved values of 35051.277(1) cm-1 for the Mg I 3s3p 1P° level and 35669.298(2) and 35760.848(2) cm-1 for the Mg II 3p 2P° levels. We have retained the less accurate values from [MZ80] for these levels for consistency with the values of other levels in the tables.
