ACE-1: Macquarie Island Particle Concentration (>10nm)


This dataset consists of particle number concentration data (> 10 nm) collected at Macquarie Island by Sonia Kreidenweis and Fred Brechtel (Colorado State University). The data contain time (ending at the stamped UTC time) and particle counts > 10 nm (N/cm3). The particle counts have been integrated over 1 minute intervals. This dataset has not been edited for baseline, local contamination or other meteorological conditions but calibration times and other non-valid, non-atmospheric data have been removed by the PIs. This results in a non-continuous time record which would need to be accounted for during any averaging procedure.
