[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This CD-ROM contains data from the Stratospheric Photochemistry,
Aerosols and Dynamics Expedition (SPADE) project. This campaign was
based at the NASA Ames Research Center in California during portions
of 1992 and 1993. The data consist of measurements collected onboard
the NASA ER-2 aircraft, and selected radiosonde soundings from
stations in the region of the experiment. Flights were conducted
during October and November of 1992, April and May of 1993, and
October of 1993.

There have been some updates to the files on the CD. If you wish to
