PMS-2D Two-dimensional Cloud Probe data

Summary

This dataset contains raw (binary 'filmstrip' imagery) files of PMS-2D data collected by the NSF/NCAR HIAPER GV during the ORCAS (The O2/N2 Ratio and CO2 Airborne Southern Ocean Study) project. These data are in a format compatible with xpms2d, available from the EOL xpms2d download page.

NOTE: During the ORCAS project, there was a problem with the timeserver which caused the data from RF12 to have an erroneous date of 1970-01-01. The flight actually occurred on Feb 15, 2016. The dates/times in the file are incorrect, but the probe did collect particle images, so the data for this flight has been left in the dataset.
