ACE-1: Aircraft C-130 Filter Chemistry Samples (PRELIMINARY)


This dataset contains filter and single-stage impactor samples taken aboard the C-130 aircraft by Barry Huebert (University of Hawaii Manoa) during ACE-1. Filter and impactor deposits were analyzed by ion chromatography for common inorganic ions and methansulfonates. The data consist of 26 columns including flight number, date/time of sample start/end, substrate, sampler, and concentrations/errors of the following substances: chloride, nitrate, sulfate, sodium, ammonium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, and non sea-salt sulfate. All concentrations are in picomoles of analyte per mole of air drawn through the filter (parts per trillion on a mole basis). Errors are calculated from detection limits and variation in procedural blanks. The data were processed and quality assured by the University of Hawaii.
