AeroLaser Vacuum Ultra Violet (VUV) Fluorescence In Situ Carbon monoxide (CO) mixing ratio - NetCDF format [Campos/Pollack/Heizer, NCAR/ESSL/CARI and NCAR/RAF]


This dataset contains carbon monoxide mixing ratio (CO) data collected aboard the NSF/NCAR C-130 (tail number N130AR) using the CO vacuum UV resonance fluorescence instrument. This instrument is similar to that of Gerbig, et al.( Journal of Geophysical Research, Vol. 104, No. D1, 1699-1704, 1999). VOCALS data have a 3ppbv precision, 1-second resolution, and a typical accuracy of 3 ppbv +/- 5%. This is the netCDF-formatted version of the data.
