Cape Grim Peroxides Data



This dataset consists of continuous measurements of peroxides taken at the Cape Grim Monitoring station by G.P. Ayers and R.W. Gillett (CSIRO). The data represents "total peroxides", which in clean southern hemisphere marine air approximates H2O2 + 0.25CH3OOH for the liquid/air flow ratio used in the measuring device. Data consist of time (julian day and hour) and hourly means of peroxides in units of pptv. This dataset was processed and quality controlled following the ACE-1 field phase.
