Summary
Abstract: A6 - NOAA ARL Twin Otter Data

The Southern Oxidants Study (SOS) conducted a major field research
campaign in Nashville/Middle Tennessee area in June and July 1994 and
1995. The goal of this study was to improve scientific understanding
of the processes that control the production and distribution of ozone
in the troposphere.

The NOAA deHaviland Twin Otter conducted airborne experiments on 16
days during the 1995 Souther Oxidants Study (SOS) Nashville/Middle
tennessee ozone study. The majority of Twin Otter flights were
dedicated to the measurement of regional pollution fluxes. The
aircraft flew low-level missions northeast of Nashville throughout the
study. The Twin Otter also conducted a large number of profiles over
surface monitoring sites, particularly the Level 3 Youth, Incorporated
station. Parameters measured include: ozone (O3), carbon monoxide
(CO), sulfur dioxide (SO2), nitric oxide (NO), nitrogen dioxide (NO2),
total nitrogen oxides (NOy), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon
dioxide (CO2), water (H2O), temperature, dew point, net radiation,
ultraviolet radiation, wind speed and direction, turbulence, position,
altitude, and aircraft velocity.

The study was conducted from June 23, 1995 through July 19, 1995.

The Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) was the coordinator for the 1995
Southern Oxidants Study Nashville/Middle Tennessee Ozone Study. See:
