Dustrack Aerosol Data



This dataset contains the Dustrack Aerosol data collected during the Stable Atmospheric Variability and Transport (SAVANT) 2018 Field Project. Dustrack samplers were set up on four towers: Initiation tower, Release tower, Upper Convergence Tower, and Lower Convergence Tower which can be seen on the Dustrak8530 and 8520 Setup Maps shown in this dataset's readme.  The Dustrack and optical particle counter (OPC) samplers measured 1-second PM total data and particle size distribution respectively.

The dataset includes the Dustrack data on experiment date of 09/23/2018-09/24/2018, 09/29/2018-09/30/2018, 10/11/2018- 10/12/2018, 10/15/2018-10/16/2018, 10/17/2018-10/18/2018, 10/23/2018-10/24/2018, 10/27/2018, 10/29/2018-10/30/2018, 11/02/2018-11/03/2018, 11/07/2018-11/08/2018, 11/10/2018, 11/11/2018-11/12/2018, and 11/13/2018-11/14/2018 in Excel documents converted by ASCII format.

All the Dustrak data of the same day are combined in one excel document each date for easy observing.
