Calculations are presented of the laterally averaged interaction between a noble gas atom and the basal plane surface of graphite. The proposed model is seiempirical, based in part on a previous successful treatment of the He/graphite case. The calculated potentials have minima which are 5-10% closer to the surface than earlier values. The results are consistent with LEED and SEXAFS data.
