ACE-1: Cape Grim Particle Concentration Data (Covert)


This Dataset consists of continuous measurements of particle number concentration taken at Cape Grim monitoring station by Dave Covert (University of Washington). The data represents the number of particles per cubic centimeter in two size bins ( > 3 nm, > 10 nm) @ 20 deg C and ambient pressure. The particle counts have been interpolated over 15-min intervals (beginning at the indicated UTC times). This dataset was processed and quality controlled following the ACE-1 field phase.
