Aerosol Particle Spectrometer with Polarization Detection (APSPD) Data [Baumgardner, Darrel (DMT)]


The APSPD is an optical spectrometer that measures side scattered light from individual aerosol particles that pass through a focused laser beam, in the optical equivalent diameter range from 0.5 to 20 μm.This dataset contains ASPSD data collected during the ICE-T project.
