Two atmospheric trace gases, namely methane and carbon monoxide have been considered in this study. Fourier transform absorption spectra of the 2–0 band of 12C16O mixed with CO2 have been recorded at total pressures from 156 to 1212 hPa and at 4 different temperatures between 240 K and 283 K. CO2 pressure-induced line broadening and line shift coefficients, and the associated temperature dependence have been measured in an multi-spectrum non-linear least squares analysis using Voigt profiles with an asymmetric profile due to line mixing. The measured CO2-broadening and CO2-shift parameters were compared with theoretical values, calculated by collaborators. In addition, the CO2-broadening and shift coefficients have been calculated for individual temperatures using the Exponential Power Gap (EPG) semi-empirical method. We also discuss the retrieved line shape parameters for Methane transitions in the spectral range known as the Methane Octad. We used high resolution spectra of pure methane and of dilute mixtures of methane in dry air, recorded with high signal to noise ratio at temperatures between 148 K and room temperature using the Bruker IFS 125 HR Fourier transform spectrometer (FTS) at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California. Theoretical calculations for line parameters have been performed and the results are compared with the previously published values and with the line parameters available in the GEISA2015  and HITRAN2012  databases.
