60s Merged dataset of all C-130 observations and GEOS-Chem near-realtime simulations for WINTER

Summary

This dataset contains all Wintertime Investigation of Transport, Emission, and Reactivity (WINTER) C-130 observations merged at the 1 minute time steps. In addition to the observations, the dataset also contains results from the GEOS-Chem near-realtime simulation sampled along the flight track. Refer to the instrument's dataset for instrument description. The GEOS-Chem model description can be found at www.geos-chem.org. Missing values are indicated by -99999. When generating fine time resolution data from a coarser resolution, the reported value at the original (coarse) time step is applied uniformly to all intermediate (fine) time steps - no interpolation is performed. When generating coarse time resolution data from a finer resolution, the time weighted average of the values at the intermediate (fine) time steps is used as the value at the coarser time step. Please follow the WINTER data policy.

These data were updated April 7, 2016. The revised set uses the final data uploaded to the WINTER archive as of 4th April 2016.
