Aerosol measurements during OASIS Barrow field intensive Spring 2009


The NCAR "Particle Size Distribution" (PSD) instrument consists of three instruments that measure the size distribution of the ambient aerosol from 3 nm to 2 microns. General specifications for the instrument during Ocean-Atmosphere-Sea Ice-Snowpack (OASIS) are as follows:

  • Size range: ~3.85 nm to 2 micron
  • Number of diameter bins: 75
  • Time resolution: 5 min
