Additional recommended knowledge
This can occur because of a change in environmental conditions: for example, a change in solvent polarity will result in solvatochromism. A series of structurally related molecules in a substitution series can also show a bathochromic shift. Bathochromic shift is a phenomenon seen in molecular spectra, not atomic spectra - it is thus more common to speak of the movement of the peaks in the spectrum rather than lines.
Bathochromic shifts are often referred to as red shifts. Although this usage is considered informal , it is often used in the literature. It has no relation to Doppler shift or other wavelength-independent meanings of redshift.
Hypsochromic shift, a change to shorter wavelength (higher frequency)
