Trace Organic Gas Analyzer (TOGA) VOC Data



This dataset contains trace organic gas analyzer (TOGA) data taken aboard the NSF/NCAR C-130 aircraft (Tail Number N130AR) during the Wintertime Investigation of Transport, Emission, and Reactivity (WINTER) project. Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) measured include hydrocarbons, oxygenates, halocarbons, nitrogen and sulfer compounds, isoprene, methacrolein, methyl vinyl ketone (MVK), and acetone. Please see the header portion of the data files for specific VOCs measured, measurement accuracies, and detection limits.

    This version contains small adjustments to alpha-pinene, as well as full beta-pinene, camphene and limonene+3-carene data for the entire project, primarily by converting some of the -999 data (no data available) to -888 data (below detection limit), but in a few cases adding concentrations that were previously not reported.
