Measurement of Air Pollution from Satellites (MAPS) 1994 Correlative Atmospheric Carbon Monoxide Mixing Ratios, CDIAC DB-1020
Entry ID: CDIAC_DB1020

Abstract: During 1981 and 1984 flights of the Space Shuttle, the Measurement of
Air Pollution from Satellites (MAPS) instrument measured carbon
monoxide (CO) using gas correlation filter radiometry. Correlative
measurements from the ground and aircraft of CO in the middle
troposphere were inconsistent. In the 1994 MAPS flights, a correlative
measurement program was designed and ... View entire text

Quality The Carbon Dioxide Information Analysis Center (CDIAC) quality assures
(QAs) data before distribution. Data received by CDIAC are rarely in a
condition that would permit immediate distribution, regardless of the
source. To guarantee data of the highest possible quality, CDIAC
conducts QA reviews that involve examining the data for completeness,
reasonableness, and accuracy.
