R/V Ron Brown Aerosol light scattering measurements



This dataset contains measurements of aerosol light scattering and backscattering as a function of relative humidity (RH) for RH between ~40 and 85%. The light scattering measurements are at wavelengths of 450, 550, and 700nm and alternating between upper particle size cuts of 10 and 1 micrometers. Unless otherwise specified the parameters given here are for standard temperature and pressures conditions of 273K and 1013 mbar.
