Summary
Abstract: These OH rotational temperature data are derived from spectra collected with a Czerny-Turner scanning grating spectrometer operating at Davis station (69S, 78E), Antarctica (see Greet et al., 1998; French et al., 2000; Burns et al., 2002).

Hydroxyl (6-2) band rotational temperatures are derived using Langhoff et al (1986) transition probabilities. See French et al. (2000) for why we prefer these ... View entire text

Quality SOME SPECIFICS ABOUT DATA GAPS
1995. Between 27th May (DOY 147) and 2nd August (DOY 214) the instrument function was degraded. Temperatures from this interval have not been provided.

1996. Betwen 28th June (DOY 179) and 20th July (DOY 201) extensive calibrations were undertaken on the instrument and no spectra were collected.

1996. From 26th September (DOY 269) to ... View entire text
Access Constraints Some of the dataset is available for download from the url given below (up until August 2013).

The Czerny-Turner dataset is available on the AAD fileshares at \\aad.gov.au\files\ATMOS\Data\Davis_SPEX - owing to the size and constantly updating nature of the data, they will not be placed on a publicly accessible download area.

The FTS dataset is available on the AAD fileshares at \\aad.gov.au\files\Atmos\Data\Davis_FTS\ - owing to the size and constantly updating nature of the data, they will not be placed on a publicly accessible download area.
