Low Rate (LRT - 1 sps) Navigation, State Parameter, and Microphysics Flight-Level Data

Summary

This data set includes airborne measurements obtained from the NCAR Research Aviation Facility (RAF) Gulfstream V (HIAPER) aircraft (Tail Number N677F) during the "Stratosphere- Troposphere Analyses of Regional Transport 2008 " (START08) project. This data set contains merged Low-Rate (LRT, 1 sps) production, DGPS, and CO data. This data also contains updates to dewpoint measurement and dependent variables; 2D-C concentrations, histograms and related variables; solar zenith angle variables. The files are in netCDF format. This dataset was updated March 25, 2010.
