NSF/NCAR C-130 SO2 and DMS Measurements



This dataset consists of measurements of SO2 and DMS obtained by gas chromatography - mass spectrometry aboard the C130 aircraft during ACE-1. The samples for SO2 and DMS were independent but were collected simultaneously. The precision of the measurements is about 1 part-per-trillion by volume (pptv). Data are available for flights 11-28.
