NSF/NCAR C-130 Aerosol Cloud Particle 2D-S Data [SPEC]


These files are derived from 2D-S images and include three 61-bin particle size distributions: one for concentration (liter/micron), one for area (square mm/liter/micron), and one for mass (g/cubic m/micron). Users are encouraged to obtain the IDL software (2DSView (free and open source)) used to produce the archive files.
