Title: ISCAT 1998 Field Season South Pole Observations of NO, OH, MSA, H2SO4, DMS, SO2,and NMHC
Description:
Abstract:
The 1998 - 1999 ISCAT South Pole observational data are available on one CD- ROM. The aerosol data, trace gas data, and photolyitc rate coefficients are separated into three directories: Aerosol, TraceGases, and j-values. In the TraceGases directory, there are three ASCII data files and corresponding readme files describing the data format, measurement techniques, precisions and accuracies, and detection limits. The data files are organized according to the sensors/measurement techniques. Detailed description of project ISCAT can be found in the special section in GRL October 1, 2000. The ISCAT data CD is available by contacting Douglas D. Davis: Dr. Douglas D. Davis 221 Bobby Dodd Way School of Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Georgia Institute of Technology Atlanta, GA 30332 Phone: 404-894-4008 Fax: 404-894-1998 E-mail: dd16@prism.gatech.edu The ISCAT 1998 field observations went from late November, 1998 to early January, 1999 at the south pole. The measured trace gases includes: NO, OH, MSA, H2SO4, DMS, and SO2. Most of ISCAT gas phase sampling (i.e., NO, OH, MSA, H2SO4, DMS, and SO2) was from the second floor of the Atmospheric Research Observatory (ARO) building. The sampling lines extended 1 - 2 m from the building and were about 10 meter above the snow surface. Sampling from the ARO building was from that side of the building facing the prevailing wind. This typically was out of the "clean air sector" (0 - 120°, e.g., see Davis et al. GRL, October 1, 2001).
