Summary
Abstract: The importance of minor atmospheric constituents to the global climate is well established but knowledge of their chemistry, distribution (by latitude, altitude and season) is sparse. This project aimed to determine the vertical and latitudinal concentration profile of trace gases in order to elucidate their importance in the major chemical cycles in the troposphere. The data collected here is ... View entire text

HELICOPTER Ancillary Description
Quality The data was collected at a time when the New Zealand Division of Science and Industrial Research organisation was restructuring into separate institutes. The timing of this restructuring impacted on the data analysis process and the data was never analysed completely.

For the data collection, a unique data acquisition system was built. The formats of the captured data are now redundant with modern computer systems. The investigator maintains all of the original data (on tapes) and the computer system used. The key data/programming individual has moved on and it would most likely require a lot of effort to extract any useable data for analysis. Please contact the investigator for more information.
